Lent Resources

During Lent this year we are encouraging our schools to use the brand-new free resource for Lent, Pilgrim Pathways. The resource has been written by the Archbishop of York Youth Trust and provides 6 weeks of content, including videos with the Archbishop of York. Pilgrim Pathways will take pupils on a pilgrimage journey through Lent, looking at 6 different items that are important on a walking pilgrimage.

Each week will focus on a different item beginning with a lamp and followed with a map, first aid kit, walking stick, shelter and finally food & drink. Pilgrim Pathways will help KS2 and KS3 pupils explore how these items symbolise ideas that can help them when facing challenges in their personal life journey. The resource encourages reflection and practical actions that can support pupils’ wellbeing and happiness. They are suitable for use in the classroom, as part of collective worship, or can be used for pupils learning from home.

The resources can be accessed here:https://www.archbishopofyorkyouthtrust.co.uk/projects/pilgrim-pathways
