Class 3 (Year 1)

World Faith Week

We started World Faith week by thinking about what Jesus meant when he said, "Love you neighbour as yourself." We then investigated artefacts from the Hindu faith and talked about any similarities we could see to our own faith. Our key words today have been Hinduism, Christianity and tolerance.

Well done jack!

 

We are so proud of Jack for completing the Hospice to Hospice walk on Sunday. He walked a full 7.5 miles without complaining once to raise money for others. We were very happy to compare our medals!

We have been learning about and preparing to celebrate Ascension Day which is on 30th May this year. We thought about why Jesus returned to His Father in Heaven and wrote beautiful messages to send to Heaven with Him. It was very exciting!

We had a fabulous time at Quarry Bank Mill learning all about the lives of working children in the Victorian times. I think we all decided that we are quite lucky nowadays!

Lent Preparations

In Class 3 we have started our Lent preparations by sharing the Lent bag. We have talked about how we can grow closer to Jesus during lent and have made Lent promises to help to keep us on track! If you share the Lent bag at home please remember to send photographs to the office so that we can post them on our website.

Thank you for people who are special to me!

Finley chose the psalm for our prayer and worship this afternoon. We prayed together to thank Jesus for people who are special to us in our life and at church.

 

God, you know me so well.

You always know what I am thinking

and feeling. You know what I am

going to say before I say it!

Even in the night, you can see me -

you know my secrets,

you know my fears.

I praise you for making me

who I am.

Psalm 139 (Psalms for young children, Marie-Helene Delval)

We are making wonderful preparations at home for Jesus' birthday!

We are making wonderful preparations at home for Jesus' birthday! 1
In Class 3 we have started our preparations for the birth of Jesus one again! We spent some lovely time together praying for things we hoped for using the first candle on our Advent Wreath. We hoped for peace, love and friendship along with many other 'hopes' the children shared. We prayed with our Advent bag so that the children can share this special time with you at home. We have all written Advent promises to try to work towards leading up to Christmas so please ask your children if they can remember what they have promised to do!

What a wonderful time we had in Class 3 this afternoon when the Zoo2U animals visited us! We met a reptile, an invertebrate, two mammals and a bird. I wonder if the children can remember the names of them?

October - the month of the Holy Rosary

In Class 3 we are trying really hard to learn the Hail Mary during October to help when we are praying the rosary. We have prayed together using our rosary bag and we are working hard to try to be chosen to take the bag home. Any photographs of the children praying at home would be appreciated as we would love to put them on the website for everyone to see. Please look after our rosary bag as it is very precious to us. Thank you.

Internet Safety

There is a new resource for parents and carers about internet safety.  "Video guides for the free ISP parental controls".   These guidelines have been produced by Safer internet who have been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, who have each made short video clips outlining where you can find their free parental controls, what they do and how you set them up.  

These films are available on the UK Safer Internet Centre website and you can embed the films if you want to use them or download them.  See http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-and-resources/parents-and-carers/parental-controls .  Do please make use of them and let people know about them.     The ISPs have committed to keeping these films updated, and if you embed the films on your site, we are able to update them for you if they change.
