Fom Easter to Pentecost

Children will explore the season of Easter as the celebration of the resurrection and coming of the Spirit. The season of Easter begins with Easter Sunday and finishes with Pentecost. The stories of the Season of Easter are our ‘Gold Star’ stories as they show us that Jesus was not just an ordinary person – He rose from the dead and came alive again! Without the resurrection the Church would not have begun.

The children will be:

  • Hearing the stories of the Easter season

  • Coming to know that God loves each one always and at all times

  • Experiencing that a Church is a special place where God’s people gather to pray.

  • Experiencing liturgical celebrations in a variety of simple settings.

It is hoped that pupils will develop:

  • An awareness of the events of the Easter

Edward De Bono

We continue to use Edward De Bono's six thinking hats to help us to organise our thinking and process or ideas. There are 6 hats and each has a different colour and so a different use or meaning. When children answer questions in class, each question will have a different colour hat attached to it. The diagram below shows you in better detail how we use them. Ask your children what hats they have used in their learning today!

 

 

Habits of Mind

The Habits of Mind are a collection of 16 thinking dispositions designed to help children develop their critical and creative thinking skills. Every week children are taught to use a different ‘habit of mind’ to help with their thinking and apply this to their work.

 

 

Visual Maps

The children are now using visual tools in all areas of their learning. These tools help the children map out their ideas and organize their thinking.

 

Please have a look at our timetable and newsletter!

For more information about the curriculum please contact your child's teacher.
