Spring 1 week 1
Spring 1 Week 1
The children have all started the new term calmly. We have had a productive and positive first two days back creating work for our new displays.
Our first focus for the new term has been completing a display for the hall on the Parable of the Mustard Seed. We have been considering the message of this parable and how things that initially seem unnoticeable can transform into the biggest and most powerful force of all. The children all created their own version of the enormous tree that grows from the smallest of seeds. Here is a photo of the display showing some of the wonderful work:
We have also started our topic of Mission where we will consider the mission of Jesus and the mission of various charity and community workers in our local area. This weekend the children are completing a homework task to research a charity that helps particular groups of people or individuals in our area. They may choose the Emmaus charity we discussed in class, a charity they already know about or one that appeals to them locally. This will also be used to create a class display.
Our new topic is Ultimate Explorers. We have been creating work for our working wall on what makes a good explorer as well as comparing explorers in different environments. Here are our draft ideas:
Keep up the good work for the rest of the year!
