RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: COME AND SEE: LISTENING AND SHARING TOPIC
The children had a great time changing the classroom into a gathering for a church. The children listened carefully to readings and psalms from the Bible. They also sang The Gloria
using the hymn books to help them.
The children had a great time working together in their groups to design an equipment layout using mats, benches, cones, hoops and small jumps. Every group designed a different layout. They all had a great time moving on the equipment in different ways.
