Remembrance Day in year 6

Today in RE, we learned all about Remembrance Day and thought of all the brave soldiers who have risked their lives, especially as it is the month of all souls also. We said a prayer to remember all those who have gone before us. In addition to this, we created beautiful poppies and wrote Non-Chronological Reports for Remembrance Day for homework.

Diwali

Today in R.E. (year 6) we learnt about Diwali. Diwali is a festival of light, which is in
honour of the Goddess Lakshmi. We learnt that during Diwali, Goddess
Lakshmi is believed to visit homes that are well lit; so families decorate
their homes with Rangoli patterns. The Rangoli patterns are created on
doorsteps to welcome everybody. For this celebration people wear their best
clothes or buy new ones, children are given presents and New Year greetings
are exchanged through visits or Diwali cards. In our lesson, we designed our
own Rangoli patterns using colouring pencils and felt tips.

Daily Act of Worship in Malachi

Sidney and Vera lead this weeks Acts of Worship. They asked people to gather on the balcony as it was a lovely day and they read  Luke 5: 1-11.  Their mission was asking people to take care of God’s world and if they see any litter in the playground to pick it up to keep our school clean and tidy.

Melani and Madison lead our other DAOW this week. They got everyone to gather outside in a circle and passed a cross around: everyone had to mention one thing they felt thankful for. Their scripture was Psalm 20:2-3. One of the response to the Scripture included on of the children was more aware of what is right and what is wrong.
