Be Spirited Week
Nursery heard about God telling Noah he was a good man and gave him a very special job to do.
Nursery Mary and Joseph are beginning to think about giving to others in need. We dressed up in our pyjamas for our school charity 'action aid'.
We brought in pictures of our families to talk about.
Nursery have been talking about the church being the house of God and how they belong to God's family.
Nursery Christmas Nativity.
The children celebrated the Christmas story through songs and role-play. They performed with a great deal of enthusiasm and I'm sure all families were delighted.
This week the Nursery children had a visitor, Casper, one of the Magi! They heard all about his journey from the East and the very special person he came to visit. The children even brought in gifts for the baby Jesus, which were then given to the charity Caritas.
Within the Nursery the children gave baby Jesus their own special gift; "Jesus I give you my heart", as they placed them in a basket at the prayer space.
Autumn 1 - Baptism
Reception have been learning about how God loves all people. The children heard how Baptism welcomes new babies into the family of the church.
The children also had an opportunity to show their own Baptism photographs to their friends during circle time.
Autumn 2 - Advent Wreaths
Reception have been learning that Advent is a time to prepare for the birth of the baby Jesus.
We made Advent Wreath crowns to celebrate the beginning of Advent.
The Reception children took part in an exciting trip to see the Living Nativity at London Zoo! Not only did we spy some lions, tigers, monkeys, penguins and a whole host of exotic animals, we also took part in a trail to visit the baby Jesus and remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. We met the wise men and their camels, went into the stable with Mary, and even saw the shepherds looking after their flock of sheep and goats.
This week the Reception children had a visit from three Magi! They learnt all about their journey from the East and the very special person they came to visit. The children even brought in gifts for the baby Jesus, which were then given to the charity Caritas.
In Year 5 this week, we have been busy thinking about our Lenten promises. We reflected on the three practices of Lent and made our promises to God. Have you made your Lenten promise yet?
If not try it at home
I promise to pray ...
I promise to give...
I promise to fast...
Caritas in Action
In Year 5 we reflected on what makes us a community and discussed our values (AT2). We decorated a jigsaw piece with images from our culture and our values. We agreed that communities are made up of people who live in the same area or have common interests. We all belong to several communities such as our street, town, country, the world and religious communities.
Can you identify where our families are from?
What makes us unique in Year 5?
Can you identify what our family values are?
In Year 5, we were paired up and sketched a portrait of our partner. After we sketched a portrait of our partner, we wrote a message telling them what spiritual gift they had been given by God and a time we saw our partner use that gift.
Our prayer space is dedicated to Lent. We have written our Lenten promises and we
acknowledge the ways we have turned away from God in our lives and we focus on turning our hearts and minds back toward God. The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In year 6, we think that Lent is a reminder about how we should be about living the Gospel every day.
