Year 2: Liturgy

Year 2: Liturgy

In year 2 today, children (liturgy group 3) decided that they wanted to do a liturgy on the theme of ‘happiness’.
In preparation, children selected the Advent wreath, a cross, and the bible and placed these special items on our prayer table. The children wanted relaxing music to play as children gathered in a circle on the carpet.

After the liturgy, children said that being with friends and family made them feel happy!
