As part of our RE topic, this afternoon we visited our church, St Peter's Chorley. We identified all the special features and areas of the church. Some children discovered the link between the keys on our jumper and the keys around church.
This afternoon we read the Bible story “Jacob’s Dream”. We then used crayons to interpret his dream in our way.
In preparation for Holy Week, we have made bread that will be placed on the Easter table.
This afternoon, Reverend Rebecca came to talk to us about the importance of Easter in the Christian religion. She spoke about the significance of daffodils and how they symbolise rebirth and new beginnings. She also explained how lambs are a sign of thank you for the sacrifice God made for us. Reverend Rebecca also taught us an egg can represents Jesus bursting out and starting a “new life” just like a chicken does when it leaves the egg.
This afternoon we heave learned all about the different symbols on the Paschal candle, otherwise known as the Easter candle. We then have created our own Paschal candle!
This afternoon we looked at different items linked to Easter. We learned that Easter eggs represent the stone that was rolled away from in front of the tomb where Jesus’s body was left. We learned the cross on a hot cross bun represents the cross Jesus died on, the currants represent the nails that were hammered into Jesus’s body and the spices symbolise the spices that were used to preserve his body. We also discussed why shrove Tuesday is significant. We then talked about lent and how people give up eating and drinking in the run up to lent.
We then looked to see where the Easter story was on the “Big Frieze”. We saw the word “sin” and discussed what that means. We also spotted the cross, the desert and a dove.
This afternoon we have learned that in Jesus’ time, children were not thought of with any high regard. So when people brought their children to be blessed by Jesus, several adults tried to stop them. However, Jesus told them to let the children come to him. We have discussed that Jesus loved everybody. We then created some artwork to show this.
Today we learned that Jesus had many friends but there were twelve men that he chose to be his special friends This group are known as Jesus’ disciples. We then looked at the story “The Calling of the Disciples” We then retold the story in our own words.
This afternoon we have Reverend Rebecca visiting Elm class! She is teaching us all about the Bible! We have learned there are 66 books in the Bible! We learned that the Bible teaches us how God wants us to behave and how we can look after each other!
We recapped what we had learned about the Bible over the last few weeks. The children were introduced to “The Big Frieze”. We learnt that the different sections of the “The Big Frieze” represent different parts of the Bible. The children noticed lots of different objects hidden within the pictures. The children had list of objects they needed to find, we then discussed their importance such as the stable and fishing net.
