At the end of November, KS2 worked with a worship band called Expedition. All the children enjoyed working out to ‘praise aerobics’ and singing worship songs. The children learned that prayer can happen at any time: while washing the dishes, walking the dog or when you’re doing your homework! The band helped the children to reflect and pray through song and dance. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, as you can tell from the photos below. (Apologies for some of the blurry ones-they couldn’t stop dancing!)
