Today we started our new topic of “baptism”. Using our “chatterbox” the children were shown different items and had to decide what our new topic was. Firstly, the children were shown cotton wool, baby wipes and a soft toy. The children realised the new topic was about babies. We then showed the children a christening robe, socks  and a hat. We asked the children where they think a baby would wear them. They then knew it was for a Baptism. We then discussed why a candle, a certificate and prayer hands are a symbol of Baptism. 

We have had a wonderful day having our spirituality day celebrating Pentecost! We have learnt the importance of Pentecost by reading the story. We have also made our own kites and flame hat. Along with Almond and Elm, we have created a large piece of artwork to remember the day. We ended the day by having a party to celebrate the birthday of “Christianity”. 

We have started our new R.E topic. We had our question box with items linked to the topic and the children had to work out what it was.  

We had

* A Bible
* Wheat
* A number 12
* A man sleeping
* A multicoloured piece of fabric.

We then looked at the painting by John August Swanson. We discussed what we could see and what we thought of the painting. 

Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at the story of Joseph. Today we role played what we think Joseph would say to Jacob when they were reunited!

We looked at the paintings below. We discussed how they showed new life and transformation. We shared what we thought the paintings showed. We then created our own piece of artwork.


  • Emmaus by Arcabas (Jean Marie Pirot)
  • Resurrection by Neil McBride
  • Resurrection by Jyoti Sahi
  • Jesus passed through death by Stephen B Whatley

This afternoon we read the story "Feeding the 5000 (Matthew 14:13-21). 


We also discussed these questions:


  •  I wonder what the most important part of the story?
  • I wonder what it would have felt like to be there?
  • I wonder what happened to the little boy?
  • I wonder what would have happened if there had been nobody to share the picnic with? 


We then looked in groups at the following paintings.


  • Feeding the five thousand- John Reilly
  • Feeding of the 5000- Laura James
  • Loaves and Fishes - John August Swanson
  • Jesus multiplies the loves - Jesus Mafa
  • Jesus feeds the 5000 - Melanie Pyke


The children then used post it notes to write what they could see in their painting and how it made them feel.

We have Reverend Rebecca visiting us today telling us all about the special events that happen in church during the festive season! 🎄🎅

This afternoon we used the iPads to take photos of the things that God created. 

This afternoon we looked at the first panel of “The Big Frieze”. The children worked together to identify different pictures within it. We discussed that it represented the creation story and the paint pots showed how God created his world.  

This afternoon we learned the story of creation. We learned that God created the world by using his voice. We had to them sequence the order God created it in. First he created light, then sky and water, then land and tress, then stars and moon, birds, fish and finally animals. The children then had to work in groups to sequence the story. We then discussed how we feel God felt after he created the world. The children thought proud, excited but very tired!

This afternoon we learnt that God created us to be creative. This afternoon we made our own creation
