Beech class have had a wonderful time celebrating at our Pentecost Spirituality Day. We learned about what Pentecost is and why it is important to Christians, we created some artwork, wrote poems, visited our outdoor classroom to reflect on why the Holy Spirit is a gift, made some origami doves and had a party.
Beech class led whole school worship on the theme of 'Love one Another'. We showed through the Bible story of Zacchaeus that Jesus wanted to send the message to his followers that you have to show love to everyone, even those who you may think do not deserve it. Jesus said to his disciples:
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples."
We also showed the meaning of love in a modern day setting with our own version of Blind Date!
As part of Holy Week we reflected on Jesus rising from the dead. We took some dry, brown seeds and planted them in our outdoor garden. We will return later to see the vibrant new life that has begun.
As part of Holy week, Beech class joined up with Birch class to create a cross using natural materials in the outdoor garden. It was lovely to see the older children being so kind and caring towards our younger children in school and working together as a team to create their crosses.
During Remembrance week, Beech class learnt the poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae. They also created a very special wreath and spent time reflecting on the great sacrifice made by the soldiers who went off to war, many never to return. We thought about people still affected by war today.
Beech class visited St Peter's Church to take part in the weekly Eucharist service. We enjoyed singing our hymn 'Our God is a great big God' to the congregation.
