2hs-2009-05-a-printWelcome to Enrichment Week! If this is your first enrichment week then you’re in for a treat! It’s an amazing opportunity to try something a bit different, meet some new people and enjoy (almost) having the school to yourselves!

It’s also a brilliant time to think about imagination. The theme of our week links nicely to this weekends feast – the feast of the Trinity. We are made in the image of God, and as God is three persons in one, we too can look at the different parts that make up who we are. We are not just our body, but our mind and our spirit too. God was an incredible creator with and incredible imagination so if we are made in that image then we too can create and imagine as well!

This weeks resources will hopefully help you experience just what this week is all about!

Tuesday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

Imagination leads to creation. God created the world and imagined all the beauty and wonder and complexity that we sometimes take for granted. This clip always reminds me of God sharing his creation with us and how we sometimes view it with excitement and wonder and sometimes we just view it as something to use as we want to take as much of it as possible.

Think about what you can create today and think about how you can use your imagination to make the most of God’s Creation.

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us to make the most of your creation. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.


Prayer at the end of the day

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

What have you created today?

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Wednesday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

Being a hero is not something every can do. Or is it?

This week we’ve been looking at what it really means to be a hero. There is one person who demonstrates just want it meant to be a hero in the way he lived his life. He came from the heavens and inspired the world to try and make more of them selves. He was rejected by society and cast out for trying to do good. He had to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the people he loved.

Who is that a description of?

Watch this video and then watch the video again but with your eyes closed. Who could the voice over be describing?

In a lot of hero stories there are more than a few similarities to the story of Jesus.

When you’re looking for a hero it might be a good place to start.

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us to find the hero inside of us. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Our Father, Who art in heaven

Thy will be done,

Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

Thursday

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

Instead of our usual PSHCE, and in honour of England’s world cup game tonight, we’re going to share an amazing CAFOD Video that Year 9 produced. Many of you did’nt see it last week because of your AoW, and even if you did it’s worth watching again! The message is a brilliant one too. Can we imagine a world without poverty and injustice?

We Start with the Sign of the Cross.

The piece of scripture for today is one of the most famous of them all. Its the very first words we find in the bible. The story of creation helps us understand about the nature of God.

“He saw that it was good”

To look at something we create and then to give it to someone else takes a great deal of love for the person or people we give it to.

Think about the last time you made something and who you made it for, how did it make you feel – how did it make them feel?

Reading the story of creation makes us think about how we treat and use God’s creation – do we make the most of the gift that we’ve been given?

Genesis 1

In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

Morning Prayer: Lord, help us to know the gifts you have given us and help us to share them with others. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.

What has been good about this week?

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
