Our Come and See topics this term are ‘Books’, ‘Thanksgiving ‘and ‘Opportunities’.

We shall begin by looking at the different books used at home and in school. We shall be learning about the books used in Church on Sunday by the parish family. We shall specifically be looking at The Bible, describing how the Gospels are used and learning to retell the story of the baptism of Jesus.

In our ‘Thanksgiving’ topic, our work will include looking at the different ways to say thank you; learning about The Eucharist as our opportunity to thank God for Jesus; retelling the story of the Last Supper and learning some ways in which Catholics can try to live what they have experienced in Mass in their daily lives.

  1. ‘Opportunities’ we shall be looking at how each day offers opportunities for good; learning about Lent as an opportunity to turn towards what is good in preparation for Easter. We shall be retelling some of the events of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

We shall be looking at traditional stories from African cultures and at non-fiction books by Ifeoma Oneyafulu. We shall be learning about the geography of some of the countries of this vast continent and allowing the topic to influence our Art and Design projects. Hopefully we shall be designing and making a functional pot from clay.

In History, we shall be looking at the life and works of Beatrix Potter.
