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.

Set up a grid, net or something that pupils can tie pieces of material to. If the school is mourning one person or event, you might want to put a picture or symbol in the centre of the grid or to one side.

Pupils are invited to tear or cut a corner off the fabric as they think about someone they have lost, if they want to they can talk to God about their pain as they tie their fabric to the grid/netting. This activity ensure pupils they are not alone in their pain.
