We have been learning about the life of Jesus in our Lent and Easter RE programme.
When Jesus grew up He was a Teacher, telling people everywhere about God’s love and how to show love to everyone.
We have shared Bible stories about Jesus choosing His Disciples who helped Him teach about God, Jesus blessing the little children and Jesus showing the power of God’s love when we are scared in the story of Jesus calming the storm.
We use props like Godly play figures to retell the stories with our friends.
We can teach like Jesus too when we are kind, sharing, prayerful and do as Mum and Dad ask us.
We’ve had great fun with COLOUR and SHAPE through playing SNAP games!
We have pretty fast reflexes to place our matching cards on the table before our teachers do, so that we can win the pile of cards!
Our hand and finger muscles have had a good workout as we roll play dough into little balls and place them on the rainbow mat.
We practised being little carpenters as Jesus did by tapping little nails into the shapes on cork boards.
Our creative side came out as we drew with chalk on the blackboard fabric and then used brushes and water to paint over our designs!
Freda felt like a real celebrity as she posed for us as we made OBSERVATIONAL DRAWINGS of her showing all her characteristics.
We had to concentrate very hard to look at her very carefully and draw the shapes we could see that made up her body. We used black pen to draw and water colour paints to colour her body.
Our investigations into how THE SUN CHANGES EVERYTHING saw us conducting experiments in the sun.
We know that the sun gives reptiles energy to survive and we found out that people can use the energy from the sun too!
We filled a SOLAR SHOWER with cool tap water, put it outside in the full sun for the day and HEY PRESTO! the water was heated from the energy in the sun shine! What a great idea if you need a warm shower and you are not near a bathroom!
We also put SOLAR LIGHTS outside in full sun for the day to see if the sun’s energy could power the SOLAR CELLS on the top of the lights.
HEY PRESTO! We put the lights into shadow boxes in the afternoon and they lit up!
How pretty they would look in the garden at night!
The sun really does have ENERGY that people can use!
Looking forward to seeing all of you at THE SCHOOL FETE this Sunday
and at OPEN NIGHT Wednesday 23rd March!
