Our first Come and See topic this term is celebrating. We explored what a celebration is and talked about the celebrations we have been a part of. We looked a different celebrations form around the world.
On Friday, we went to visit Father Mark in church where he taught us about The Stations of The Cross. The Stations of the Cross is a form of prayer used traditionally in Lent. Each of the 14 Stations retells part of Jesus’ passion through images and words. The Stations of the Cross introduce children to Jesus’ Passion, breaking it down so they can reflect upon and remember. Thank you Father Mark.
During this topic we have been learning how and why people gather together. We talked about the thing we do together and how it makes us feel.
To begin this topic we spent sometime identifying growth in nature and thinking about the different ways in which things grow.
We talked about the special days during Lent and listened to the Easter story. We then decorated Easter eggs. Father Mark explained that Easter eggs symbolise the rock that covered the entrance to Jesus’ tomb.we ended our topic with a moment of quiet reflection. We thought about how we could grow in love to be more like Jesus. Happy Easter!
