We have been learning about the church and the different parts of a church. Today we looked at different roles within the church and one of those key roles was altar servers. This afternoon we have been very lucky to speak to some altar servers from Year 5. They came down to answer all of our questions!
This term we have been looking at lots of different ice sculptures. We have already designed our ice sculpture, so today we practised making our Arctic animal sculptures from paper. We have made polar bears, seals, penguins, arctic foxes and arctic owls! We had to use lots of rolling and folding to help make our animals stand up on the card!
This week in our RE lessons we have been very lucky to learn about a different religion. We have learned all about Judaism. At the start of the week we had a visit from Mrs Elijah. She told us the story of Moses in the Bulrushes. It taught us about how Moses was a baby and managed to stay safe. We also learnt about the story of Abraham. We learnt about his family and how he was a great leader who loved and trusted God. God promised Abraham that he would have a descendant as wonderful as the stars in the sky – meaning his son. We then looked at the members of our family and how great they are.
This week in literacy we have been looking at instructions and learning how to make our own sandwiches! Today we made our own – and chose what filling we would like. Next we are going to write our own set of instructions to share our recipe with everyone!
All Saints Church
Today we took a lovely walk to All Saints Church. We have been learning about the sacrament of Baptism and its importance within the church. Fr. Christopher was there to meet us at the church and show us what happens during a Baptism ceremony. We learnt about the font, the holy water, the people who attend, the scented oil, the candle and the white garment.
We are learning about the sacrament of Baptism and have learnt all about the different roles - the priest, parents and godparents. Each group created a still image of what a baptism scene could look like. We also looked at the font, holy water, shell, garment and baptismal candle.
Today we went on our first Year 1 trip to the woods! We had a great day exploring the woods, seeing what mini beasts we could find. Then we got a chance to build some dens to help keep us dry! After lunch 1CO went on a hunt for the Gruffalo. We were lucky enough to find some other characters along the way as well as meeting the Gruffalo at the end of the trail. Well done to all the children who all took part in map reading and making sure we didn’t get lost!
We have been very lucky to have some special guests in Year 1 over the last week. 10 eggs were delivered and luckily we had all 10 eggs hatch! It has been a lot of responsibility, making sure we feed them and give them water every day, as well as clean them out each day. When the chicks were a little bigger, we were all allowed to hold one!
