Christian Aid Week

Last week, the children discussed how Christian Aid help people around the world. We designed some posters to raise awareness for Christian Aid week. The children explored the principles of Christian Aid and presented on their posters the reasons why they thought people should donate to this organisation. The children came up with lots of ideas!

Well done everyone!

Gardening Together

This week, the children have enjoyed tidying up the garden and planting some flowers.

We are so proud of them! They have done a wonderful job, haven’t they?

Stay safe!

Easter Arts and Crafts

This week, the children have created some wonderful art related to Easter: Palm leaves for Palm Sunday, Golgotha Hill for Jesus’ crucifixion and Easter egg baskets to represent new life (Jesus’ resurrection).

Well done, everyone!

Have a lovely Easter!
