We have been looking at and talking about some pictures of Jesus and his friends. We are all Jesus’ friends! We drew a picture of ourselves and placed them next to Jesus.
Today we gathered with our school family to take part in a Pentecost parade. We listened to the word and prayed together as a family. We then presented our offerings, representing the fruits of the Holy Spirit, in our Gospel Garden. We spent time preparing our focal point as a class. After Collective Worship we celebrated the coming of the Holy Spirit with a Pentecost Party. Pentecost is often named as the ‘birthday of the Church’. We share our happiness and joy because we celebrate the Good News of Jesus who kept his promise and sent the Holy Spirit to be our friend.
Today we listened to the story of Peter and John from Acts Chapter 4: Verses 1-26 and how they had the courage to stand up to the officials and keep their promise to Jesus telling everyone that they could not keep silent about the great things that God has done and they would continue to spread the Good News.
First we prepared questions for the two disciples and took part in an interview role play. Then we thought about times in our own lives where we have had the courage to stand up for something we strongly believed in.
