Hello from Miss Gainford,
This week we were going to learn about Jesus the teacher. If you have a children’s bible at home see if you can find a story that Jesus told or search the internet with a grown up to find one. His special stories were called parables and he used them to teach people about important things so that they could understand them. When you have found one, draw a picture of it and discuss what it means .
Our other lesson was on staying safe at home. So again with the help of a grown up you can become a safety officer and check that all dangerous items or places are made safe.
These could include; medicines, cleaning or garden products, sharp knives, tools, glue, batteries, stair gates, electrical leads and sockets, matches and toys.
Did you find anything that needed sorting? If you did, well done.
