We are going to be thinking of Lent today! We have now entered the season of Lent, and it is important that we have a good understanding of what it is and why Lent happens!
This year, Lent began on the 17th February 2021, and Lent ends on Saturday 3rd April 2021!
Watch this video to gain a little more of an understanding:
During Jesus' time spent in the desert, he resisted a lot of temptation.
The devil (Satan) asked him to do lots of things, like turn bread into stone, but Jesus was dedicated and had an answer for everything the devil asked of him.
Watch this short video to help you understand this a little more!
Here are two different activities for you now.
The first one gives you some scenarios to think about. Read each speech bubble carefully and think about the questions! You can write out the answers in your book or you can discuss them with an adult. Whichever way you choose to explore the questions, I would like you to really think about them carefully!
The second activity sheet asks you to consider what YOU would give up for lent! Complete this activity to the best of your ability in your topic (pink) books!
