This activity is focussed on grief. Grief can be extremely hard for people to come to terms with. This activity is designed to encourage pupils to express their feelings of grief and their needs and to bring them to God if they want to.

Pupils can take a piece of paper on which they write their feelings. Pupils will feel different things as everyone processes grief differently. They are also encouraged to write down what they need to help them with their grief. They can then take their paper to the wire wall, roll it up and put it in a hole. The wire wall is significant as it represents the Cross, Jesus suffered on a cross and God grieved for Him. God understands our feelings and our needs when we grieve.
