OBON Day! 25th June

One Britain One Nation

OBON was a super day! We thought about all the countries in the Britain working as a team and how this was better than working alone! We then proved this by taking part in balloon teamwork games together.

We also had a treat from a special visitor!

This term we will learn about the Resurrection of Jesus and its message. We learn that Easter is the most important Christian feast because Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and ascended into Heaven on Ascension day. We will learn about the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and reflect on times when our own sadness has turned to joy. We will be introduced to Thomas the apostle and reflect on the importance of his story.
