This week Year 3 has been learning about Christianity. They began by identifying what they already knew about the Christian church and writing some questions about what they would like to find out.
Following this they found out about some artefacts and symbols found in a Christian church; these included the cross, bible, candle, dove, paschal lamb and bread and wine.
On Wednesday, they were lucky enough to visit St Giles Church to find out how different symbols are used in daily worship. Reverend Michelle and Reverend Nick showed the children lots of symbols and explained their meaning, as well as how Christian’s use them. The children also had the opportunity to ask some of the questions that they had prepared earlier in the week.
It was brilliant for the children to be able to see some of the symbols in real life and have the opportunity to have their questions answered by an expert.
Year 3 furthered their learning back at school by finding out about Holy Communion.
