We supported a Hornsea based Charity 'Men in Sheds' by decorating our classroom doors with an Easter theme. It was great fun and the school looked really bright and colourful.
The pupils at school have been thinking about the death of HRH Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh. We created pictures and letters that we have sent to Revd Tina at St Nics in Hornsea.
Revd Tina sent this reflection and prayer for us
The death of Prince Philip was made all the more poignant by the current restrictions. It occurred to me that many people are mourning loved ones, and that includes children who have lost grandparents and parents too. So the question arose of how to include children in our national sense of loss? Making a contribution in words or art seemed a good way to help children understand what had happened and allow for those difficult conversations that surround death. So I am delighted by the response from Hornsea Community Primary and will ensure these pieces are available as part of the on-going history of our town.
The Church of England offered this prayer with young children in mind:
We are sad that Prince Philip has died.
Thank you for his long life
and for his care for The Queen and our country.
