Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


Today we learnt about the story of Jesus turning water into wine. We then re-enacted the story in front of our friends.

We talked about following Jesus and how we could do this in our lives.

Today we have begun our new topic of God’s family. We read the story, “ All are welcome”. We looked carefully at the pictures and discussed how everyone was different and spotted children that had similarities to us. We discussed how they were all part of different home families but belonged to the same school family. We took it further and explained that we are all part of God’s family.

We created transient art faces of ourselves and discussed what makes us different and special.

I explained that Gods greatest treasure was in the box. Each child peeked in and saw themselves in the mirror in the box. We discussed how they are God’s greatest treasure!

We had a whole school assembly about CAFOD’s harvest appeal. We will be bringing in donations for our local food bank and give money to CAFOD’s appeal by wearing green!

Today we watched a video about the creation of the world. We then created a class display of the wonders of creation.

We read a poem today about how God created the world. We used props and actions to say the poem. We thought about all the amazing things that God has created and reflected on what we felt was Gods most beautiful part of creation and why. 

We continued our topic of God's World by thinking about how much God loves us. We read the story "Guess how much I love you?" By Sam McBratney. This gave us lots of ideas about how much God loves us!

Our topic for the first half of the autumn term is God's World. We began this topic by reading 'Owl babies' by Martin Wadell. We discussed how the baby owls love their mummy very much and she loves them. We discussed who we love in our lives and then drew them.

This is Willow Class' prayer area. The children are able to come here to offer a prayer and listen to a Bible story. 

We love to go to our prayer area. Today's story we are listening to is Noah's Ark.
