The children had an amazing time at the zoo. They saw lots of different animals including their focus animal the elephants! They saw a tiger eating its dinner, monkeys swinging and a bear drinking from a bamboo stick. We went in the bat cave and watched the giraffes playing. Thank you to all our helpers!
Image result for reflection time
The children from Year 2 visited St Matthew's Church for some quiet reflection time.
The children were greeted by Father Dominic who showed them the lovely Christmas Nativity and Crib and spoke to the children about the three kings and shepherds who visited Jesus after he was born. He talked about the importance of these visitors and the special celebration. It was lovely to see the decorations in our parish and have some time to reflect together.

As part of our recent RE topic children have been thinking about different types of books and their purpose. We worked in groups to explore different types of books, identifying who they were for, where they could be used and why. We also used our knowledge from Literacy to identify if they were fiction or non-fiction.

In Collective worship the children have been talking abut dreams and goals. They have been reflecting on their previous year and have been working together to set goals for this year. They discussed how they could support each other with these goals and how God will also be there to help them. In days following they talked about the importance of reflecting on the past to learn from it and to forgive what has happened to start a new beginning. The children enjoyed sharing their dreams and aspirations including improving their handwriting, concentration, making new friends in the school, joining new teams and being more helpful at home.
