Diwali Celebrations: in family groups, the children made Diva Lamps and Rangoli Patterns; they learned the story of Rama and Sita, and took part in Diwali dance and drama
Joy, Sylvia and Deborah 'walked through the bible' with Helvellyn children.
Catbells explored bibles - big, small, old and new!
Catbells' children brought in their bibles from home. Pauline (PCC Governor) brought in her bible from home and taught our children about the layout! Suzanne brought in her very old family bible, which had lots of written additions within! The children tended to prefer the picture bibles, and their favourite 'bible story' was Noah's ark!
An Easter treat from the Mothers' Union!
The Mothers' Union prepared a treat for our EYFS children! The children were able to explain the significance of the cross on the hot-cross buns, and the chocolate eggs on the crispy cake!
In Early Years, we have been learning about 'New Life' within spring time! We searched for plants, birds and nests, had a visit from Mrs Bindloss with her lamb, and also Bryony with her newborn baby. We explored 'new beginnings' within the 'Easter story'.
How does Rev Alun help us?
Revered Alun taught us how 'he helps' us in the community including his roles linked to 'births, marriages and deaths'. He taught us how he conducts his 'Worship Times' at church, and we explored how music is used in church services too!
Reverend Dave led our Christingle celebrations. The children learned about the significance of the various parts of the Christingle from the orange to the candle... they were desperate to eat the sweets that represent the fruits of the earth!
