Our Church Visit

This afternoon we had a windy walk down to the church which got the children into a lively and excited mood for meeting Father Spain. It was great to see the children begin to genuflect and listen as Father Spain showed the different items for the baptism service. We are so thankful to spend time in church which has helped with our RE learning. A big thank you to all the mums who came with us to help keep us safe on our walk to church.


During RE today we have been continuing to explore our topic of Baptism. It was lovely to share the photographs from Tapestry of the children's baptisms. We have been talking about the key parts of the baptism ceremony and look forward to seeing Father Spain on Thursday to talk about our topic.

Delicious mud pies!

This afternoon during our plan, do and review session it was lovely to see the children using our new mud kitchen to make mud pies. There was great teamwork, good language of measurement and incredible imaginations at work.

We're all wonders!!!

This week in school we have all been exploring how we have all been created with special talents and gifts from God. It has been lovely to use stories, songs and circle times to discuss bullying and the differences between friendship issues and bullying. We have all been learning about a little boy called Noah who had to learn to say the word "stop" which the children now know they can say on the playground if they see someone being unkind to a friend.

Number Five

This week in our digit dance we are working on forming the number five correctly, "straight back, big belly and a hat on top" is what we say to help us remember how to form five correctly. As you can see we had fun outside practising writing our number fives.
