Life is like a long journey. We go through different seasons and stages, and some are more enjoyable than others. Sometimes we like the place that we are in, and sometimes we wish we were further on or further back.
Images can help us to identify our feelings. This prayer activity uses a selection of images to enable pupils to reflect on how they feel about their lives, in the present moment.
This activity works best with a wide range of images, e.g. happy faces, desolate landscapes, sad cartoon characters, lonely people. Abstract images are good too, pictures of mazes, crossroads, signposts, etc.
Pupils are invited to look at the images and then write on the back of a copy of an image that they identify with in some way.
Our feelings change as our circumstances change. And as we travel the journey of life, we change too. Enabling pupils to think about their life journey and how they respond and feel to their circumstances is a key aspect of supporting pupils personal development.
