It was unusually quiet in school last week as our children took part in ‘Think Week’ run by the Christian charity, SparkFish. This provided children with a ‘Think Space’ for reflection time and prayer in a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The children were encouraged to think about stewardship and what it means to them.
Children took part in a number of memorable activities including writing their favourite creature or place on a paper leaf and pinning it to the tree, asking God their big questions about stewardship and collecting rubbish which had been thrown on the floor prompting them to think about the bad things we can sometimes say and do. The depth of thinking in the children’s responses was impressive with many profound questions asked.
To give you a sense of what goes on in the enquiring minds of young people today here are a selection of those BIG questions:
- How can a person change?
- Why do people pollute the world?
- God, if you made the world, how were you made?
Thank you SparkFish for your inspiration and creating a sense of wonder at Nutfield Church School.
