We have all started our work on the final RE topic of the year.  This has a focus of the planet and the people on it.  Children in Year 3 will be learning about special places, and especially those of pilgrimage.  With holidays coming up, this may be a nice topic for conversation. 

Alternatively, Year 4 have started to think about Saints, and are full of enthusiasm about researching their own names and the names of their families.  Do your children know why you chose their name?

This week pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed hearing about Joseph Bear's pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  As they went back to class they were given a Jerusalem Cross pilgrimage 'badge'.  The Jerusalem Cross is a design composed of 5 crosses. If your child has been wearing one, you may wish to ask them what the 5 crosses signify.

Table Talk Topic for this week - If both hands fall off a clock, is it still a clock? Just a reminder, that we have a Prayer Intention Book in the Reception area of each school. Please feel free to write your intentions in as you wish. Thank you to those who have added to it. Please take the time to read it when visiting the school.

This week, pupils in the Junior school have started learning about other faiths.  This is always fascinating, and it is really pleasing that many children are making links with what they have seen and heard in our assemblies about the festivals celebrated by people of faith in Britain. Why not point out some places of worship if you are out and about in the car, bus or train? Within a mile or two of school there are prayer halls and mosques, a synagogue and many Christian churches. 

Our next topic is about the Universal Church.  This includes much teaching and learning about stewardship of the planet and caring for God's people. Many of these lessons will take place in our lovely grounds, so that we can appreciate the gift and beauty of the planet we call home.

Table Talk Topic for this week - If I tell a joke which needs to be translated, who makes the other person laugh: me or the translator?? Just a reminder, that we have a Prayer Intention Book in the Reception area of each school. Please feel free to write your intentions in as you wish. Thank you to those who have added to it. Please take the time to read it when visiting the school.
