Mrs McKinney's Mary Prayer Corner Challenge 4
Friday is the start of May, the month which we dedicate to Our Blessed Lady. Catholics in every part of the world, pray to the Queen of Heaven during this month, both in church and at home. We are encouraged to offer our prayers to Mary from our hearts. As my challenge this week I want to encourage you to create a prayer corner in your home. Can you give Mary a special spot in your prayer corner? It can be a statue or picture, but a place there is some representation of Our Blessed Mother. Can you make it appealing and a real tribute to her beauty and virtue? Could you decorate it with homemade flowers and write a special prayer to display? I will show you the area that I create in school.
Good luck and stay safe.
Mrs McKinney's Earth Day ChallengeThree- 22nd April
Wednesday 22nd April 2020 marks the 50th Earth Day. This could be the year we stop taking the planet for granted!
Now more than ever, Earth Day offers an opportunity for us all to reflect upon our relationship with the planet, nature can surprise us at any moment. It is a time when the health of the planet and its people has never been so important.
Right now, it may be hard not to feel a little anxious and maybe fed up but there are wonderful promises of greatness. After the lockdowns, we will see greater appreciation for nature in many countries around the world. From China to Spain, people of all ages are missing what they did not know they would miss until they could not have it: craving open spaces; realising the wellbeing and health benefits of accessing nature; and, in many countries, missing the blossoming of spring.
The challenge for this week is - Could you make a pledge to our planet?
A piece of writing, a piece of artwork, a prayer. What do you think the world will be like in 2070?
I cannot wait to see what you come up with.
Here are some websites with more ideas
