When someone that we love leaves us or dies, they leave a gap in our lives. we miss them.

This activity focusses on grief. It encourages pupils to remember that they are not alone in grief and to think of others who may be grieving. It aims not to minimise the grief of a pupil but to enable them to remember that family members and friends will also be experiencing similar feelings during a time of loss.  

Pupils can take a piece of string and think of others who are grieving in a similar way to themselves or someone they know who is grieving. As they think of different people they can add a bead to their string.  If they want they can pray for comfort, healing and love for those who are grieving. They can then tie the string around their wrist to take home as a reminder of those people.
