Normally around this time of year, we’d be doing bits and pieces in Church with P7s and Rob would be going into a few schools with Scripture Union to help with their IT’S YOUR MOVE programme. Unfortunately that’s not been possible this year. ☹️
However SU have made three 15-20-minute videos, with an activity sheet available online. This is an excellent resource. It takes a look at identity and helping to prepare for the move to secondary school, thinking about the Changes, Choices and Challenges that lie ahead:
A bonus of getting to go through the material with your own child this year is that it provides an opportunity for conversations and feelings to be shared about it all, if they haven’t already done so with you. Rob also has a few IT’S YOUR MOVE P7 handbooks – another great resource with loads of handy tips! If you’d like one, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will get a copy to you.
It’s not easy for our children and young people at the moment, but parents, please know that as a Church family, we are regularly thinking and praying for them!
