We began the week with an assembly to begin Spirituality Week. The theme was ‘Meeting Jesus’ The children placed a host on a large host to create a lovely display showing We are one Body. On Monday we created a dance with a song about being with Jesus. On Tuesday we went into the hall and took part in different activities, reflecting on being with Jesus and talking to Jesus. On Wednesday we looked at a picture of Jesus on a train and discussed what the picture was telling us.
On Tuesday morning we were all excited but shocked to see a crime scene in our classroom. Mummy bear’s bowl of porridge has gone missing and a chair had been knocked over. The children were fantastic at looking for evidence and interviewing adults in the school. After a hard day of work the children solved the problem and managed to get a confession. After listening to Mrs Theo’s story, we realised it was an accident. Mummy Bear’s bowl of porridge is back in the class. We have some great detectives in the class!
On Friday it was lovely to welcome you all into the class to enjoy your child’s learning.
Whole School Home Learning – St Paul
Find out about St Paul, one of the leaders of the first generations of Christians who spread the word
about Christianity. Pope Paul VI chose to be named after this saint.
Create one piece of learning from your research; here are some ideas of ways you can present your findings.
- Make a fact file about his life.
- Retell one of many stories about his life, for example his conversion on the road to Damascus
- Create a piece of art work about St Paul,for example sketch a drawing of him or paint a picture of one of the stories of his life.
- Draw a map of the journeys of St Paul.
- Make a poster about St Paul.
- Make a scroll copying out one of his letters.
- Interpret some of his writing using art, for example, interpret his writings about the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
- Create a model of an object that could be used as a symbol of St Paul, for example, a horse, a tent, a scroll.
These are some suggestions but you may have your own ideas and we look forward to sharing your learning. Bring your creations into school during the first week back and by Friday 7th June 2019 at the latest.
Have a wonderful holiday!
