Our trip to church was the highlight of our week. We were able to see all the things we had been learning about, such as the lectern, the altar, the font, hymn books, chalice, stained glass windows, statues, etc. We practiced how to behave at church; for instance, Father Cristiano showed us how to genuflect to say 'hello' to Jesus. We learnt about the celebrations at church. We saw a baptism and a picture of a marriage. We explored all that learning during play in our pretend church.
Thank you to all the mums who kindly helped us during our church trip.
Our topic this term is 'Travel'. We have been learning about different types of boats by reading stories and information boats. We made boats using bricks and recycled materials and we swam our boats.
In RE, we have been learning about celebrations. We learnt about celebrations and church and different objects we can see in a church such as hymn books, a font, stained glass windows, statues, crucifix, chalice, etc. We are hoping to gain first-hand experience of the learning we did by visiting our church next week. We read and acted out the story of Jesus' presentation in the Temple.
We also practiced combining horizontal and vertical movements to draw zig-zags as part of our 'Write Dance' lessons.
