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!
