Both the Year 3 and Year 4 children had a fantastic time performing their Easter musical at St Peter's Church after lots of hard work and rehearsal.
Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to church today. They completed lots of different activities to help them answer the question: "if God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?
Year 1 visited St Peter's church. We were excited to see inside. We did a church trail where we found out about lots of things that are a special part of the church such as the font, the altar and the pews. We talked about why a church is an important place to Christians and how it is a community. We really enjoyed our visit.
Year 2 visited church, we had an amazing time doing different activities to teach us what Christians believe.
Year 3 children went on an interesting visit to St Peter’s church. Katherine taught the children about communion in the Christian church. Thought provoking activities were enjoyed by all.
Year 5 and 6 visited St Peter’s Church, Horbury. Katherine, who leads the children's work at St Peter's was there to greet us. We explored a big question – Where is God? Children took part in a few activities, the first one was looking for different Disney characters on a very crowded sheet – because sometimes it’s hard to find what you are looking for. Next the children thought about God being connected to Nature and made different animals out of play dough for other to guess. The children then enjoyed the polo game – (passing polo’s to one another on a cocktail stick)- this was to think about God in the community.
At the end of the session, Katherine asked – Where do you think God is? Here are some of the children’s suggestions.
