Hello Year 1,
Are we ready for another week of home learning?
This week I would like you to have a look at the VE day work in the link below. To start you off, maybe you could do some research about a very special man who has been in the news lots recently by the name of Colonel Tom Moore. Can you make a poster all about him? Could you draw or paint a portrait of him?
Thank you so much to everyone who is tweeting and blogging. It is lovely to hear from you.

TOPIC Holidays and Holy Days
LEARNING FOCUS 1: What a holy day is.
The word holiday comes from holy day. In times past the only holiday anyone had was a saint’s feast day or important feast days like Easter and Christmas. Some days of the year are ‘holy days’, when we celebrate these special times in the Church’s year.
We have just celebrated the feast of Easter when we remember Jesus rising from the dead. Look at the Easter garden or Church’s Story 2 pages 76-77. (see below) One special word we sing at Easter time to celebrate is ‘Alleluia!’
Sing/listen to ‘Holy Days and Holidays’ see link
The church celebrates some days as holy days e.g. the patron saint of the school, Christmas, Good Friday, Ash Wednesday and the Ascension etc.
SOME KEY QUESTIONS
Q What happens on those days?
Q Which of them were also holidays?
Q How are they celebrated?
Can choose either Christmas, Easter or school’s feast day and record what happens on that holy day?
LEARNING FOCUS 2: Ascension Day: Jesus goes back to his Father.
Look at the picture from Church’s Story 2 pages 76-77. After his Resurrection, Jesus appeared to the disciples and made a promise to send his Holy Spirit to them. Read the first two paragraphs from God’s Story 2 page 81 The promise of the Spirit based on John 13:33; 14:18.
Before Jesus left his friends, he promised to send them a helper, the Holy Spirit. The holy day, Ascension Thursday, celebrates Jesus’ return to his Father.
It is difficult at this age for children to understand the abstract concept of the Holy Spirit. The image of a dove and elements such as air, wind and fire are used to help explain the power of the Holy Spirit. The effects of these elements are what the children will explore.
Can you create a collage of Jesus talking to his friends; add speech bubbles and retell the words of Jesus’ promise?
Can you create a stained-glass window on a template in the shape of a dove or a flame? Talk about the choice of symbol and how it represents the Holy Spirit?
