Today, Mrs Beer talked to us about things that make us happy – not big expensive toys or holidays, but everyday things that do not cost any money. We heard this reading:
A reading from the book of Ecclesiastes (11: 8 – 10)
It’s good to be alive
When you are young and when you are old.
No matter how long you live,
There is always something you can find to be happy about.
Enjoy every minute of life, young people, and remember God in everything you do.
The word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
Year 5 were in the hall with Mrs Beer and they gave lots of examples of little things that make them happy: baby brothers and sisters, a hug, a smile, doing something nice for someone, school, takeaway food and drawing. Mrs Beer talked about kicking piles of fallen leaves and looking at the moon in the sky.
We ended by doing the actions to the song “If you’re happy and you know it”. That made us all smile too, so we added music to our list of things that make us happy.
What little things make you happy?
