Come and See Topics

     Collective Worship

Each day as a class, we gather for Collective Worship.  We have the opportunity to listen to the word of God as well as                     say our prayers.  We have Collective Worship in the hall, class and in our new prayer room.                                                                              



During the topic of Myself, we had the opportunity to get to know our new friends in class and to learn their name.                                                We discussed that we are all unique and that God knows each of us by name.  We painted our portraits and made name plaques for our bedroom doors.  We learnt our new class prayers, which we say before lunch, during collective worship and at the end of the day.

As part of our Come & See topic "Welcome" the children brought in Baptismal items from home to share with the class.                  They also made their very own Baptismal candle, which they took to our class Baptism of doll Daisy.


During the period of Advent the children developed an understanding about the real meaning of Christmas.                                  They learnt about how we prepare to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.

During this time the children made an Advent wreath, wrote Advent wishes as well performing the Nativity story for friends and family.


As part of our RE topic Growing, we talked about how spring is a time when things grow.  We looked for signs of spring, as well as planting our very own flowers and vegetables.                We have also watched tadpoles hatch from frogspawn.  Also during this topic, we have been learning about how Lent is a time to grow in God's love.  We wrote Lenten promises and talked about how we could try and be more like Jesus during Lent and in the future.  We have also been learning about Good Friday and Easter Sunday and recognising them as bible stories.
