Year One

 

What's the Forecast

 

In years 1 and 2 we have learned about the months and seasons of the year, and we have looked at maps of the UK. We then looked at the weather in the different seasons and then became weather forecasters presenting our very own weather forecast for the UK.

Christingle Tradition

 

Year 1 enjoyed learning about the Christmas tradition of Christingles. Christingle means "Christ's Light" and it is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the "Light of the World". Christingles are made up of different parts, each one being there to remind us of something. The orange represents the world; the candle reminds Christians of Jesus who they believe to be the light of the world; the red ribbon goes all round the 'world' and being the colour of blood reminds Christians that Jesus died; the four cocktail sticks could have either of two meanings, the four seasons or the four corners of the world; the sweets (or sometimes dried fruit) remind Christians of God's gifts to the world including kindness and love.
