This week we began learning about our class Saint …..Saint Anthony!
We began by learning about what a Saint is and why Saint Anthony is special and was made a Saint. We know that we can pray to him if we lose something and he will help us to find it. To show how tricky it can be to find things when they are lost and to put ourselves in his position, we began by playing Ispy and finding religious objects in different pictures and we then went outside in our teams to find a number of things in a scavenger hunt.
This Wednesday, Year 2 celebrated the nativity of the blessed Virgin Mary. We began our afternoon with a prayer service, where we looked at the significant moments, where through Mary’s support Jesus was able to fulfil God’s plan. The children set the altar and we discussed the significance of the items we placed on it. The children had many questions and comments to share demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of Mary’s life. We then made flowers to place on our Mary altar, we wrote prayers and messages to Mary, made birthday cards and concertina Mary models.
