The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.
The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.
The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;
As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.
This week we have listened to the story of Pentecost. Jesus’ friends were all very sad after He had died but they knew that He would send the Holy Spirit to them. At first the disciples could hear and feel a strong wind in the room where they were gathered. Next they saw the flames come and rest upon each of them. The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and they began to talk in many different languages. We spent time talking about how we thought the disciples might have felt that day. We each coloured in a flame and made a Holy Spirit hat to remind us that we too are friends of Jesus and we should also be spreading the Good News of God just like the disciples did.
We have enjoyed reading ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’ and loved joining in with the story. Some of us chose to paint a picture of a ladybird and we looked at its spots and tried to count out the legs onto the ladybird. During maths this week we have been recognising numerals and adding the correct amount of spots to the ladybird’s back.
