Having talked about Shrove Tuesday in an assembly before the half term break, we learnt more about Ash Wednesday and Lent in our lower school assembly this week.

On Ash Wednesday many Christian churches hold services during which Christians are marked on the forehead with a cross of ashes. This is a sign of saying sorry to God for any wrong-doing.

We talked about times we have had to say sorry and how it can be hard to do sometimes. Forgiving people who say sorry to us can be hard too. But we all agreed that apologies and forgiveness can make us all feel better and move on in a positive way.

We shared the bible story of the prodigal son, which Jesus told to help people understand the importance of forgiveness.
