On Friday, the children in Reception talked about October. We have talked about how October is a very special time in the church calendar and that it is the month of the Rosary. The children spent time exploring Rosary beads and Miss Wilson explained how people in our church community use them.
We listened to the ‘Hail Mary’ and tried to join in with this special prayer. We talked about who Mary is and why she is so special to us. We know that Mary is Jesus’ Mother and we enjoyed talking about some of the stories from the bible that she is in.
We ended by listening and learning a liturgical dance to ‘Hail Mary’. We know that this special dance is a prayer to Mary. We each took a picture of Mary and her prayer home to share with our family.
