Silence

In RE, Bluebirds explored the idea and reason for being quiet through the story of Elijah. After they sat in silence and discussed their feelings and what they thought about.

Kiall – I felt calm and thought of nothing
Melissa – I felt relaxed and thought about sleeping
Amber – I felt relaxed and thought of unicorns!
Naly – I felt excited as I thought about my holiday
Harry – I felt happy and thought about my new house

Afterwards, children considered why Christians value silence and heard the story of John Newton, a former slave trader who used quiet times to reflect upon his life. He is best known for writing the hymn called Amazing Grace. The pupils then wrote a “Silence” acrostic poem on their reflections.
