Well done to year 2 for leading our Easter match at church today.
This Easter, we are launching an OLSJ ‘sacred space’ project. All creations will be due on Tuesday, 30th of April 2019.
Design your own Catholic Church- remember to include all the signs and symbols you have learned about in school and seen in our local church.
Design a ‘shared sacred space’ for Christians and Jews- consider similarities and differences when creating your design.
Design a ‘shared sacred space’ for a hospital, airport, prison or shopping. Consider how this could accommodate Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and non-religious people.
I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
This morning, year 3 performed their Easter Story to the school, telling the events of Holy Week. Well done on such a great performance! It was evident you all worked really hard to learn your lines and songs.
Today in R.E., Year 1 visited our local church to learn about the Stations of the Cross. We listened to Father Keith tell us about the 14 different stations.
We then walked around the church and saw it depicted in stone.
