Pentecost is when Jesus gave his Apostles the gift of the Holy Spirit. This year Pentecost will be celebrated on Sunday 31st May. Read the story in the Bible reference below:


The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-13)

2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”



Use the images below and the Bible reference to create your own picture of Pentecost. You can paint your picture, use collage, use fabric or anything else creative. See what you have at home that you could use. Please post photos of your artwork once it is done.


Design and Technology:

This week we would like you to make your own Bird Feeder. Please look at the examples below. There are a few good ideas online if your need inspiration.

  • Please make sure that you use recycled items for example- plastic bottles, milk cartons, jam jars, pieces of wood.
  • Decorate your Bird feeder.
  • Make sure that it can hold nuts, seeds, bird food or bread, that the birds that reach.
  • Try it out in your garden or on your outside window ledge. 
  • Send pictures or blog about it!



This week we are going to investigate how gravity and air resistance works. Below is the experiment we would like you to try. If you do not have all the items, improvise! 

Remember to write down your prediction before you start. 

Write down your method of making the parachute.

Take photos.

Write down your findings.

Please make sure an adult helps you with the last step.
