In RE, Year 2 have started to learn about thanksgiving. The children listened to and took part in the Last Supper and thought carefully about what Jesus gave thanks for during this meal.
This week in collective worship Key Stage 1 children enjoyed an ‘open the book’ session. The visitors read the story of Adam and Eve and encouraged everyone to take an active role in the story; both in drama and discussion. The children thought about how important it is for us to listen to what we are told and to do it.
This week in RE Year 2 have been learning about the Gospels. They know that they word Gospel means Good News. The children know there are 4 Gospels, we find them in the New Testament and they were written by four of Jesus’ followers; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
For Collective Worship this week Ethan brought in his own Bible from home. He was able to show us some stories in the his Bible that belonged to the Gospels.
The children stood to greet the Gospel and sang Alleluia as Ethan carried the Gospel to the lectern. The children then made the sign of the cross on their forehead, lips and heart to show the think about the Good News, speak the Good News and live the Good News.
This week Year 2 led their collective worship on the Epiphany. The children read the story of the arrival of the Wise Men to Bethlehem. They discussed how the wise men followed the star and didn’t give up, even though it took them a very long time to arrive.
The children then considered how they too are like the wise men, they also follow Jesus each day. They do many things to show they are followers through their words, action and behaviour. On a crown the children were invited to write down something they try to do to be a follower of Jesus.
In RE Year 2 have started to learn about different kinds of books. The children began by thinking about different books that they use at school and at home. The children thought about fiction, non fiction, religious and learning books. The children sorted a collection of books into different groups.
