St Mary’s Church Visit

Our R.E. topic this half term is The Church. We have been thinking about why Christians visit Church and have looked in detail at some of the features that we would find inside.

It needed lots of pairs of hands helping and some nimble fingers to create these magnificent tepees which will protect our teddies from all the Spring showers.

We have done lots of hands-on comparing of objects and have measured ourselves and objects both inside and outside. As part of our lessons so far, we have found objects less than and more than a
