Class Two enjoyed a trip to the Church today to spot signs of the Easter story. Reverend Nigel led the visit and retold parts of the Easter story, explaining the significance of each part to the children. Did you know that the front of every Church and the altar inside is always facing to the west? Can you find out why?
This week we have been thinking about Shrove Tuesday and Lent and learnt why Christians eat pancakes. We then had fun making pancakes and once they were cooked sprinkling them with lemon and sugar and eating them. Yum! Yum! We then were very busy writing pancake recipes.
In Class One, we have been thinking about the message Jesus gave us to ‘Love our neighbours.’ We have thought about who our neighbours are and have some written prayers about them.
Creation Station worked with years 4 & 5 on our collective worship theme of HOPE. The children thought about the hopes they have for the future and created time capsules to keep them in. The time capsules were then collected together to create a mobile that we have hanging in our classroom.
Years 4 and 5 have been working with a coach form Exeter City in the Community to develop their football skills and to learn about the importance of exercise and nutrition. Today they completed their course and received congratulations certificates.
