As part of our RE unit ‘Why do Christians Celebrate Eucharist’, we attended Holy Trinity Church this morning to see what happens in church during a Eucharist service. After the service, Rev. Nancy, Andrew and Ian spent time answering our questions about Eucharist.

Many thanks to the congregation of Holy Trinity Church for welcoming us into the church, and to Rev. Nancy, Andrew and Ian for generously giving up some time to answer our questions.

Jewish Seder Meal

This afternoon, to round of our RE work about the Exodus, we reenacted a Jewish Seder Meal. We tried the different food, including parsley with salt water, horseradish and lettuce, and matzos with charoset. Some of it we weren’t so keen on! We finished by singing ‘Dayenu’, a song often sung at Passover. Here’s a link to it:

It was great to experience the meal and think about the symbolism of the food.

Healthy Heroes Afternoon

On Wednesday afternoon, we had a fantastic time when parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles joined us in school to look at the work we have been doing during our topic ‘Healthy Heroes’.

There were a range of activities to participate in: a trim trail, making and eating ‘bento boxes’, playing our Scratch games, as well as looking at our superhero stories, comic strips and Top Trump games!

Thanks to all the adults who came along and made the afternoon a very special one for the children.
