The Creation of Adam
To begin our 'Creation' unit in RE, we recreated a section of the famous painting on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam: Adam’s hand reaching to touch the mighty right hand of our Lord. We used the grid method to ensure our drawings were precise. Then, we used flesh tones to add colour; we focused on highlighting the areas where the light touches the hands and using a darker shadow to deepen the darkest areas making sure that the whole illustration was blended perfectly. We thought about how we were made in the image and likeness of God and what that demands of us.
Prayer Bag Liturgy
G led Linden in their first 'prayer bag' liturgy of the year. It was a lovely liturgy celebrating the astonishing life of Her Majesty and giving thanks for her service. G presented her service beautifully and reverently with the help of some of her friends.
We held our first whole class collective worship led by our newly appointed liturgy leads; it was a beautiful service of welcome and new beginnings.
Compassionate and Loving
We worked in groups to explore this half term’s Jesuit Virtues: Compassionate and Loving. We discussed what is meant by each virtue and how this will shape our work and play this year.
Our Class Saint: Saint Michael the Archangel
We learned all about St Michael and enjoyed completing a fact file about the chief of all the angels and of the army of God. We are looking forward to celebrating our class saint on 29th September, his feast day.
We discussed our school Mission Statement and explored how this will affect our actions and faith this year.
