We began our new RE topic on 'Waiting' today. We talked about times when we have to wait for things. The children had to wait until they could unwrap our postbox ! We can now post letters and cards to each other in class!

Our Church Visit

This afternoon we had a windy walk down to the church which got the children into a lively and excited mood for meeting Father Spain. It was great to see the children begin to genuflect and listen as Father Spain showed the different items for the baptism service. We are so thankful to spend time in church which has helped with our RE learning. A big thank you to all the mums who came with us to help keep us safe on our walk to church.

Learning about Judaism

In Year 5 this week in RE we have been learning about Judaism. Today we were finding out about what Jewish people have in their homes. One thing we found out is that when Jewish enter their home they touch a Mezuzah to remind them God is with them. This afternoon we made our own Menuzahs.


During RE today we have been continuing to explore our topic of Baptism. It was lovely to share the photographs from Tapestry of the children's baptisms. We have been talking about the key parts of the baptism ceremony and look forward to seeing Father Spain on Thursday to talk about our topic.

Delicious mud pies!

This afternoon during our plan, do and review session it was lovely to see the children using our new mud kitchen to make mud pies. There was great teamwork, good language of measurement and incredible imaginations at work.
