Week 4 brings us within sight of Easter and having past the half way mark – the end is in sight!
This week we are completing our focus on the three pillars of Lent by looking at ‘Almsgiving’. Almsgiving is another way of describing charitable giving – it comes from the Greek work for charity and compassion.
Next week is Lenten Fundraising where we as a school put our faith into action and raise thousands for charity and everyone had the chance to start their fundraising with the penny they received in their Act of Worship last week.
This week we’re going to think about how we can take it further and how we can give more than just our money too. Can we be brave enough to give our time, our compassion and our love to those people in need too?!
Remember, rather than a daily activity, each week there will be a theme for discussion and reflection, a video explaining what it’s all about, a ‘big question’ for discussion/reflection and a chance to continue that discussion throughout the week with your comments and input. It should help the resources be more flexible and allow for deeper exploration of the topic.
Make sure the first thing you do is watch “Word of the Week” so you know what’s going on and then each time you discuss and engage with the prayer resources leave your comments using the comments box below so you can come back to it and continue the discussion.
The big question will allow everyone in the form to vote on certain topics and will build over the week to reflect what people are thinking.
(Don’t forget Thursday’s is still PSHCE so check that out at the bottom of the page too!)

Over the week give each person a chance to vote and then by on Friday have a look at the results!
Do you think the UK should stick to its policy of giving 0.7% of its GDP to overseas aid ever year?
Express your thoughts in the comments box below.
Each day you’ll be able to see what other people are thinking in the other forms and have a chance to respond with your thoughts/comments. Come back to the discussion each morning if you can!
Does giving money to charity make a difference?
Form time AoW should always start and end with the Sign of the Cross.
Each day when you’ve finished your discussion/activities spend a few moments in silence to think about the day ahead.
If anybody has anything or anyone they would lie to pray for then don’t be afraid to share this with everyone before your end your form time AoW.
You might even want to create a prayer box that you can put intentions into each week if you don’t feel like saying it out loud.
For our PSHCE this term we are focussing on a new topic – People’s rights and responsibilities.
This topic is all about exploring the different freedoms and rights that we enjoy but others do not. It’s also about exploring what a Christian is called to do in today’s world.
