Please find attached the Purposeful Practice Grid for weeks 7 and 8.
This week in Religion we have been learning about what members of God’s family do when they go to Church. We talked about how people bless themselves with Holy Water and genuflect when entering the Church as a sign of respect. We also spoke about the differences between a crucifix and a cross. We learnt about the importance of what the cross and crucifix symbolise.
In Art we created our own crosses.
2 Gold used paint and tissue paper to make a collage.
2 Blue made their cross with sticks and wool.
We can’t wait to show you our finished crossed for Open Night.
This week we have been making the most of the cooler weather by completing some of our lessons outside.
During our Talk4Writing lessons we innovated our Story Map of ‘Hey Little Ant’ to be ‘Hey Little Flower’. The children innovated their own story map. Some children changed their story to be about… bees, spiders, butterflies, bunnies and grasshoppers. They have learnt their story map with actions. You might like to ask your child to perform their story to you at home.
This week in Religion we have been learning about our families. We have discussed how our families are similar and how they are different. We have also learnt how families cooperate and show love to each other. In Geography we have talked about where our families were born and have lived.
To capture our learning we have made some beautiful family trees.
Next week we are going to learn about Jesus’ family and how he helped and showed love to his Mum and Dad.
