This week our Year 1 children looked at the special features of Christian places of worship. In particular the children looked at how stained glass windows are used in some churches as a focal point within the special building. We discussed how the pictures reflected different stories from the Bible.
The children then created their own stained glass windows. Here are some of their creations. Didn't they do well!
The Year 2 children furthered their knowledge and understanding of different stories within the Bible by reading the story of Adam and Eve. We discussed how this special story for Christians was found in the Old Testament and how this was found in the first section of the Bible. After reading the story the children took different roles to recreated the story in freeze frame pictures. They then picked a picture of interest to write about. Look at the pictures below and see whether your child can explain what is happening in each picture.
This Christian story teaches Christians that they should do what they know to be the 'right thing' and not listen to what other people tell them to do as they do not always act in the best interest of the person.
E.g. You love going on the spider web. On Tuesday your friend in another class tells you to go on the adventure playground with them but your classes turn isn't until Thursday!
What should you do?
What should you say to your friend?
On Friday 19th October Year 1/2 will be visiting the Church. Letters about this trip have been sent home with an attached consent form. Please could these be returned a.s.a.p. If you are able to help with this trip it would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully the weather will be on our side and it will be a lovely autumnal walk to the church.
While walking to the church we will be looking for the different human and physical features within out local area (linked to our Geography topic!)
Finally, this week in Maths we have been learning about the value of 2 and 3 digit numbers- Place Value. We talked about hundreds, tens and units. Hundreds we count in 100's, Tens in 10's and Units in 1's. Below is the link to a game which can support your children in their understanding.
