Hello Year 1,
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed any VE day celebrations you may have had. It looks like lots of you had a great time from the pictures on the blog and tweets your parents have posted.
We enjoyed celebrating and enjoyed a picnic in our front garden. Some of our neighbours did the same too. On Saturday, I camped in my back garden. We even watched a movie outside. Noah, Oliver and Charlotte loved it and want to do it again.
Remember to keep in touch at least once each week using the class blog. Also once each week, email school with a piece of work you have done. Thank you so much to everyone who is. It is lovely to hear from you.

TOPIC Holidays and Holy Days
LEARNING FOCUS 3: Pentecost: The Holy Day.
Look at Church’s Story 2 pages 78 and 79. Talk about what is happening in the pictures and read the text together. Explain how the disciples were afraid when Jesus had left them and they had gathered together in one room. The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost changed them. It is a holy day because this gift of the Holy Spirit is very special. The Holy Spirit helps and guides us in our lives just as happened to the disciples. The Holy Spirit appeared to Mary and the disciples like tongues of fire, giving them strength and courage to serve others.
Can you make a face on a paper plate or a round piece of card to show how the disciples felt? Discuss what captions would be appropriate. e.g. ‘The Holy Spirit bring us happiness.’ ‘The disciples were astonished.’ etc.
Can you add speech bubbles to the picture on page 79 to show what Mary and the disciples might be saying?
LEARNING FOCUS 4: Pentecost Day.
Look at the pictures from God’s Story 2 pages 84-85 Pentecost Day. Share the story and talk about Pentecost in more detail. Emphasise how Jesus’ friends knew he would keep his promise and how, with the help of the Holy Spirit, they shared the happiness of Jesus’ love with everyone.
Can you create a dance showing the sequence of the events of Pentecost Day? Discuss how the friends of Jesus changed?
The Oak academy has some fantastic foundation lessons prepared. Please click on each lesson title for the link.
In this lesson, we are going to be virtually flying to Australia; the continent is also known as Oceania and Australasia. Today, we are learning more about this small continent. First, we will be filling our brains with facts about the population, how many countries are in Australia and the currency they use. Then we will be looking at the interesting animals and landmarks you could see if you visited Australia.
