Year 2 have thought carefully about how they can do good during Lent. They thought about how Christians try to turn away from bad choices and make good choices. The children shared their Lenten promises during Collective Worship.
Year 3 have been exploring how people give themselves as part of their Lent topic in RE. The children listed different occupations people have and examined their way of life.
They thought about what they did, how they might feel about their job, what they thought about their job and what we would do without them. They then presented their findings to the rest of the class.
The ladies from Open the Book joined us to share the story of Jesus calming the storm. They told us a story when Jesus and the disciples were on a boat and there was a mighty storm that rocked the boat and the boat started filling up with water.
Jesus sat up and said, “Why are you afraid, Do you still have no faith?” Then Jesus got up and rebuked the winds and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm.
The children really enjoyed listening to the story today.
Today, ‘Open the Book’ joined us to share the story of Jesus and the Fisherman. A man told the fisherman to put their nets into the water and the nets were filled with lots of fish. It was then that the men realised that this was Jesus, and chose to follow him. We will all be taking a fish home from the ‘Open the book’ session to remind us of this special story and how we can also follow Jesus.
