 Article 30: You have the right to practice your own culture, language or religion. 

Welcome back Year 1 to another exciting term. I hope you have a restful Easter break and are looking forward to learning about our new topic.

This term is based around our question of ‘What is wonderful in the UK?’ We will be using the ideas drafted last term to research about different cities both in this country as well as around the world and compare and contrast the different traditions. We will also be looking at our favourite places in our local area and identify these on a map. As usual there will be opportunities each week for you to bring any objects, pictures or books, based around the theme. You may like to share some pictures or stories about the places you have visited and what it was like there. Try talking to your parents and grandparents about the places they have visited or how people live in different cultures. 

Our theme for R.E this term be about Pentecost and the celebration of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We will also be thinking about how we can be good messengers of God and ways we can spread the good news of how to live like Jesus.

 A Blessing for us all:  

Wherever you go, 

May God the Father be with you. 

Wherever you go, 

May God the Son be with you. 

Wherever you go, 

May God the Spirit be with you.  

May the Lord bless you, 

May the Lord take care of you; 

May the Lord be kind to you, 

May the Lord be gracious to you; 

May the Lord look on you with favour, 

May the Lord give you peace.  

(From Numbers 6:24-26) 

 

Keep your eyes open as we complete various activities we will post photographs on our class page to celebrate our achievements.
