How the Holy Spirit gave Peter and John courage

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.

Spring Walk

This week, we have been on a nature walk around the school grounds. We have been looking for signs of growth and new life.

We saw some flowers – daffodils, crocuses and tulips. We also saw some twigs with buds on and some new leaves growing.

Spring is definitely here!

The first signs of spring!

The first signs of spring!

In Reception we have started looking at our new RE topic, growing! We have started by looking at and thinking about growing and the changes that we can see around us.

In our PE lesson we have created our own Spring dance, starting as bulbs and growing slowly into flowers.

In outdoor learning we enjoyed exploring our school grounds looking for the first signs of spring.

We then enjoyed planting our own cress seeds. We will continue to watch them grow over the next few weeks!

Over the next few weeks we are going to think about Lent and how it is a time for us to grow in special ways – in love, goodness, kindness and helpfulness. Lent is a special time for us to try and grow more like Jesus.

We Will Remember

We Will Remember

Yesterday Nursery have remembered the soldiers. We’ve talked about why we need to remember them and made a poppy to help us remember.  We placed some of our poppies on the tree and we’re taking the others home to help us remember.
