RE Open Afternoon - December 2017
Last week we invited parents in to spend an afternoon with their children creating a nativity scene to display in the hall. Each class worked on different features using different art techniques which were then put together to create one fantastic picture.
Reception made the stable using their cutting and gluing skills
Year 1 provided the angels using their cutting and gluing skills
Year 2 painted and glued sheep, cows and donkeys
Year 3 focused on the shepherds using mosaic techniques
Year 4 painted the Kings
Year 5 used chalk pastels to create Mary
Year 6 wove Joseph and Jesus
The outcome was amazing, I'm sure you'll agree.
As we do every year, we took time out over the last week to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
The children made displays, talked about it together and bought poppies from the Poppy Appeal box. On Friday, the whole school, including our Pre-Schoolers, gathered together on the playground, held hands and held a minute's silence to honour the fallen and to mark the end of the First World War.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
