EXPRESS YOURSELF ACTIVITY
This week is Children's Mental Health Week. This year's theme is 'Express Yourself' and it's all about finding ways to share your feelings, thoughts or ideas through creativity. There will be daily activities set to support this.
Today's activities are:
Circle time activity: Sitting in a circle (or online if children are not physically in the same space), everyone takes a turn sharing something with the group. Warm up with simple ideas, like asking children to share their likes, dislikes and something about themselves. For example, go around the circle saying: One food I don’t like is….If I had a free hour to myself, I would….Something you might not know about me is….

At the end of all the work you have done on BOOKS, you might like to think of all the books you use at home, in school and in church. Perhaps you could write your own prayer to thank God for books.
If you have a Bible at home, place it reverently on a table. As a family, gather around it and read the scripture below:
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Matthew, (Make the sign of the cross with your thumb on your head – to know and understand God’s Word; lips – to speak God’s Word and heart – to love God’s Word) Glory to you, O Lord.
At that time Jesus arrived from Galilee and came to John at the Jordan to be baptised by him. But John tried to make him change his mind. “I ought to be baptised by you,” John said, “and yet you have come to me!” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so for now. For in this way we shall do all that God requires.” So, John agreed. As soon as Jesus was baptised, he came up out of the water. Then heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and lighting on him. Then a voice said from heaven, “This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased.” The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
Quietly think about these questions and share your thoughts if you want to:
Q What does this Gospel story say to you?
Q Why did Jesus ask John to baptise him?
Q How do you think John felt?
Q How do you think Jesus felt when he heard God the Father’s words?
Say this prayer, or the one you have made up, together: Heavenly Father, thank you for all the books we learn from and especially those we enjoy reading. Thank you for the Bible which tells us of how much God loves and cares for all people. Thank you for all the books we use in Church. Help us to look after them all. AMEN!
