We have been exploring the power of the wind and fire. We spent time around the firepit making sparks and then trying to develop those sparks into an actual fit in the fire pit. One child was successful in lighting the wood. We will keep trying with this skill.
In the classroom the children made some windmills to enable us to 'see' the power of the wind. These will be put into our Year Three garden area.
The children have been exploring the story of Pentecost in relation to the Glorious Mysteries. We combined English and RE to create Shape Poems about the coming of the Holy Spirit.
We made windmills to put in our garden, they have been spinning really fast when the wind blows.
We have also been celebrating Pentecost as the Church's birthday. We put on our party hats and went on a question and answer hunt outside.
