Good morning Brown Clee!
This week we have been thinking about our Christian value of our half term, which is THANKFULNESS, and linking it to Armistice Day when we remember, and show our gratitude, to the members of the armed forces, past and present, who sacrifice so much for our freedom. We have also learnt how important it is to develop an ‘Attitude to Gratitude’ as science has shown that by having a more thoughtful, positive and appreciative attitude, we can actually change our lives for the better.
It is very easy in these busy days to forget to stop and take a moment to look around us, and to think how fortunate we are – to live in such a beautiful county, to have families that love and cherish us, to have friends and classmates, to have food at lunchtime – so many things and more!
Here is a video from the Pace Trust teaching us more about the importance of having an ‘Attitude for Gratitude’…
We show thankfulness every day when we say Grace before lunch, and we have learnt in this video how Christians say thank you to God when they participate in the Eucharist in church. Thank you are two little words that can sometimes be forgotten – but they can mean so much and make such a difference – what can you say thank you for today?
Prayer of the Day
Thank you, God, for all that we have.
Thank you for our food, our family, our friends and all that you give us.
We are sorry that sometimes we forget to say thank you.
Help us to always thank other people for the things they do for us,
and to thank you for all that we have.
