This week in RE we have been thinking about what we value about friendships. We discussed what it means to be a good friend and we passed a ball of wool around a circle. We thought about why it is easy to be friends and what we like about our friends in school. At the session we had created a visual friendship web out of wool showing how we are all connected. Super learning!
1SPThis week in RE the children have been learning to identify when it is easy and difficult to show friendship and we have explored when Jesus may have found it difficult. The children started by reading bible stories and watching animations of Jesus with his friends. The children summarised each story and we displayed their notes for them to see. The children discussed how Jesus showed people how to be a good friend and they shared their ideas on how Jesus is a good friend to the people in his life. The children also thought about the fact that Jesus was human and that he might not have always been friends with everyone but he tried his hardest as he was viewed as the son of god. Super discussions year 1!
This week in RE the children have been learning to identify when it is easy and difficult to show friendship and explore when Jesus may have found it difficult. The children used Abbey Owl to discuss things that a good friend does and does not do. The children the wrote their ideas down on a post it note and we sorted them into the correct category on the IWB. We are going to try really hard this week to ensure that we being a good friend to everyone in our class.
This week the children have been celebrating Chinese New Year. We started by reading the story of Chinese New Year and learnt the reason that each year is named after an animal. Whilst celebrating, we have been busy with lots of creative activities, including attempting Chinese writing, making lanterns, and we even made our own yummy Chinese noodles. After this we produced some amazing writing about how people prepare and celebrate Chinese New Year and we also wrote instructions for how we made our paper lanterns. Well done!
