Anti-bullying week 13th -17th November.
Good advice from the children in EYFS to scare away bullies! "Make a monster to scare them!" The children used coloured paper, pom-poms, pipe cleaners and googly eyes to make some amazing "Worry Monsters" that not only scare away bullies but also love to eat any worry you have too!
RE Day October 25th 2017
Theme: ”Buildings” or “Places of Worship”
To link ideas where possible to “Hull City of Culture”
Objective: To investigate and be able to describe different “sacred places” or “places of worship” belonging to one or more of the six main faiths.
Children in EYFS enjoyed looking at different 2D shapes found in pictures of local church buildings and windows in Hornsea They cut out shapes to make a church steeple for example and used coloured tissue paper to make the stained glass windows. Year 1 linked Maths and RE by counting animals in 2’s into Noah’s Ark and later looked at different places of worship such as a Jewish Synagogue, Hindu Temple, Buddhist Wat or Sikh Gurdwara. 1KR also took a virtual tour around a Christian church. Year2 studied “Places of Worship” in Hornsea and found out what happens during a church service. They also looked carefully at where other faith groups worship by comparing pictures of different buildings. Year3 invited a special visitor from the United Reformed Church to come and talk about the “inside” of the church. The children asked lots of interesting questions and discovered some new vocabulary such as pews for the seating and a Bible stand called a lectern. Year 4 looked at art in different churches and compared the ceilings of The Holy Trinity Church in Hull with St Nicholas Church in Hornsea and also The Sistine Chapel in Rome. They even had a go at drawing on a piece of paper taped under the tables whilst lying on their backs… fun but not easy!
Year 5 designed their own churches and stained glass windows by comparing Christian church building materials, style, furniture and things in common that they all have, including stained glass windows, towers, steeples and gargoyles.
Year 6 found out about different places of worship in our area and focused on the different symbols of faith found in each. 6NF designed their own stained glass windows as a way of conveying a message or Christian story. 6SP used their knowledge of different symbols and church formats to design their own “Prayer Gardens” with the emphasis on a special and peaceful place. A very busy day.
Autumn Term 1 RE 2017
EYFS have been finding out about the special celebrations and collection of fruit and vegetables at Harvest Festival time. Year 1 and 2 have been thinking about themselves and discovering that they are "unique" They all have different interests, and that people have all kinds of different beliefs.
