This week we talked about all the things in the world that God has made. We coloured pictures of the things that God has made and stuck them onto a large world. We sang "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands" and learnt the actions.
This week we thought about how God had made the world and everything in it, including us. We made lovely worlds by doing bubble printing and then put our handprints onto them.
God made the world and God made me!
This week we read "Guess How Much I Love You?" We tried to show how much we loved our families, like Little Nutbrown Hare did. We stretched our arms wide, we stretched up tall and we also talked about how big God's love is. We passed Big Nutbrown Hare around our circle and we said our sentence when we were holding him. "God's love is bigger than..." It's really hard to describe how big God's love is!
"God's love is bigger than a house" Samuel
"God's love is bigger than a tree" Daniel
"God's love is bigger than Asda" Gabriel
"God's love is bigger than the sky" Nzubechi
"God's love is bigger than mountains!" Victoria
This week we learned about how God had created the world in 7 days. We talked about looking after the world that God has made for us.
We looked at pictures of all the things that God had created and talked about which pictures we liked best. We coloured pictures of all the things that God had created.
This week Mrs Gajjar read the story of The Little Red Hen who wanted someone to help her to plant her seeds so that she could turn them into flour to make some bread. Each time she asked one of her friends to help her they said that they were too busy and that they couldn't help, she had to do it herself. At the end of the story all the friends were very interested in wanting to help to eat the bread but as the Little Red Hen said, none of them helped her to plant the seeds so she didn't need anyone to help her to eat the bread.
Mrs Gajjar then asked the children how they could help each other and how they could help in the class. They chatted about how it was kind to be able to help rather than saying no.
We learnt this week that we are all very special and that God loves each and every one of us.
Mrs Gajjar showed us a box, it was a very special box with something special inside. When we were all sitting down, she asked each of us to have a turn at opening the box carefully to see what was inside. We then looked and told her what we could see. It was very special, and we are very special. Inside the box there was a mirror, and we could see our reflections.
Afterwards we took some time to try to draw ourselves.
This week Mrs Gajjar spoke to the children about how although we are all different, we are all part of God's family. She then showed them how we have different coloured hair, eyes and skin, also that some of us are short or some of us are tall and that we can have curly or straight hair.
The children were then allowed to use the iPad themselves to take photographs of their friends outside.
This week saw the start of our RE lessons with Mrs Gajjar. The children were introduced to the prayer table where we keep the class RE book and class Bible. Mrs Gajjar told the children how important the table is and that we must keep it looking neat and tidy. The class have been learning two prayers, one to start our learning sessions and the other we say when it is time to go home. They have been very good at joining in with the actions.
