Juniper class had the pleasure of Mrs Bastable teaching them about the religious meaning of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh today and that Jesus was God’s gift to the world. We really enjoyed looking at and smelling the different materials.
Today in Juniper class we completed a number of fun activities for anti-bullying day, based around the theme ‘change starts with us’. In one activity, we said unkind, hurtful things to an apple and then, kind, positive things to another apple. We discussed how saying these unkind things made us feel sad and sorry for the apple. When we cut the apples open, the apple that we had said unkind things to was broken and bruised whereas the other apple was healthy. We immediately understood the impact that our words can have on people. The bruises and broken bits showed us what happens inside each one of us when somebody mistreats us with their words and actions.
The children enjoyed discussing their achievements this half term with each other. Well done to all the children who attended. You have all worked really hard with your learning.
Book Exchange returns next week! Years 4-6 will be in Monday afternoon and EYFS up to Year 3 will be on Wednesday. Children need to bring in a book, leave it in their bag and then when called they will have the chance to go to the dining room and exchange for a new one! Simple!
