“A huge thank you for all your time and enthusiasm in creating an amazing space for the children to reflect and talk to God in different ways. We have had brilliant feedback from staff and children alike, saying how much they got out of it and how valuable it was to have the time and space to quietly reflect. Rarely have I seen such a demand from staff for a ‘repeat’ event, we would love to have you and the prayer spaces back.”Headteacher (Hampshire)

‘Rising Sea’ is part of the Justice Series, developed in partnership with Christian Aid.

This activity is about climate change. Climate change affects our world in many ways, including causing changes to weather patterns.  In Bangladesh, they say that climate change tastes of salt because increased rainfall is flooding homes and farms making the crops taste like salt from the sea and river water.

Christian Aid works with organisations around the world who are helping communities deal with the effects of climate change. We’ve included a case study PDF from Bangladesh.

This activity invites pupils to read the case studies from Bangladesh and think about those who are facing the effects of climate change. The pupils are invited to taste a pinch of salt, and then write hopes or prayers on Post-it notes for people in Bangladesh.

Follow-up lesson plans based around this theme are available on the Christian Aid website.
