On Tuesday children in KS2 prepared their individual pots for planting their seeds. They filled the pots half way with soil ready for their seeds which were going to be added into the soil during the Ash Wednesday service.
To celebrate Ash Wednesday KS2 attended a Church service and learnt about Ash Wednesday and what it means to Christians. They were invited to receive a cross from ash on their heads. During the service all children had a seed placed in their prepared pots. They will now take the pots home to look after their plants as they grow. In about a month all the plants will come back to school to be planted in the playground.
