Easter-Hot Cross Buns

In R.E. we have been learning about the Easter story and how Christians celebrate Easter. We found that they send Easter cards, have Easter eggs and enjoy hot cross buns. We discussed as a class what the cross on the hot cross bun symbolised. The children were able to discuss the link between the cross on the hot cross bun and the cross Jesus died on. We also discussed whether Easter is a sad or a happy festival and the children debated their thoughts. As a class we decided Easter is a happy time because Jesus was risen. As part of our learning about Easter we worked in teams to bake hot cross buns and even washed up after ourselves.

Intra Competitions – Dance and Gymnastics

This week the children in Years 1 and 2 have been performing their  dance and gymnastic routines from this terms P.E. learning.

In Gymnastics the children in Year 1 learnt how to move across the floor in different ways, at different heights and different speeds. They learnt how to travel over mats and benches in a safe way ensuring their routines had a clear start and finish position.

We performed our finished routines to our friends in Years 1 and 2 and Miss Rea and Miss Fraser marked our performances. 

Congratulations to the Green team who won the competition overall with the most amount of points. 

In Dance, the children in Year 1 listened to the story of ‘Handa’s Surprise’.  They learnt how to retell specific parts of the story through their movement in dance.  They learnt to move in different speeds, heights and as different animals.  The children worked in pairs to retell the story through the medium of dance.
