DBE Weekly Challenge – Week 2 - Crosses


Begin by talking about crosses you have seen in the world you live in. For example:

  • In maths to mean ‘add’
  • A kiss on a birthday card
  • On a poster for an event that is sadly cancelled
  • A crossroads sign on the road
  • A vote indicated on a ballet paper
  • X marks the spot on a treasure map

Talk about the cross being an important symbol for Christians. Why is it such an important symbol? Use the images at: https://www.cofeguildford.org.uk/resources/the-resource-centre/world-crosses to look at different crosses from around the world. Can you create your own family cross? What would you put on it? What is special about your family? What are you grateful for?
