Bluebirds have had an exciting afternoon investigating making electricity circuits ready for their project! After making predictions, children set to work to see if they could create a circuit to make the lightbulb work! Children felt a great sense of achievement when their team made a successful illumination!
Bluebirds discussed conflict resolution during a circle time today. They talked about the meaning of the words and how they could apply this to daily life within school.
Children considered how to avoid making matters worse by becoming physical or shouting, try to be in the “other person’s shoes (imagine how they feel), avoid putting the other person down and blaming them, listen to each other’s view without interrupting (active listening!). The children thought about who could help to solve conflict in school.
The children realised how important talking together really is, especially when they heard the story of the Two Ladies and a Lemon!
Today, Bluebirds heard a verse from the Bible (Genesis 1 : 28) where God gives humans the responsibility to rule (care and look after) all the animals.
Mrs Parry showed the children a photo of her pet dog Zac and the children shared what pets they had. We also thought about the needs of our new class fishes (Dave and Shane!). This lesson enabled the children to relate the doctrine of stewardship to the care of animals
The class all contributed and created a list of everything people need to consider before deciding to get a pet.
In RE today, Year 3 discussed what taking care of something meant. The children discussed what they needed to take care of everyday. These included furniture at home, toys, pets and little brothers and sisters.
The children then discussed how to take care of our world. Here are some of the ways we thought of;
After our circle time we then made an information poster about how people can take care of our world.
