We have been learning that Christians belong to the church community - the parish, which celebrates in a variety of ways.
We made spider gram of celebrations which take place in a church. These included weddings, baptism, funerals, Christmas and Easter. We sorted photographs into church community celebrations and school celebrations.
We looked at lots of photographs of church buildings. We found out how they are similar. We learned the words
cross stained glass windows statues spire
We drew our own churches adding these features.
We then used our model church to find out about the inside of a church. We then matched the pictures to the correct descriptions.
We sorted photographs into 'inside' and 'outside' the church. This helped us to learn and understand new words including benches, lectern, pulpit, font, bible and altar.
We listened to the story of Noah. We enjoyed taking part in lots of activities to learn the story and understand God's important message. We wrote our own promises to God.
