What's at the top of the beanstalk?
All our learning will be based on our big question.
Some of the exciting activities we have planned include:
Planting different beans and making comparisons
Looking after plants
Visitng a garden centre
During our topic, 'Sorrow and Joy', we will be focusing on the following main teachings:
Understand that we should try to be kind and not hurt others and reflect on ways to be kind and helpful to others.
Learn to say sorry when we hurt someone and ask Jesus to help us to do this.
Know that Jesus forgave those who hurt him and be aware that we can forgive other people when they hurt us.
Know that Jesus died on Good Friday but that was not the end and to be aware that Good Friday is a sad and happy day for us.

Please remember to read every night with your child(ren).
Even if your child is not reading fluently yet, it is important that you dedicate 10 minutes each evening to sit down and read their school book with them.
This might include asking questions about the front cover, talking about the pictures, making predications about what might happen next and modelling how to follow the words whilst reading.
