Welcome to Maple class and the Summer term.
Please find below our learning
The Roman invasion of Britain was hugely significant in shaping the British nation. This term our history focuses on the settlement in Britain by Romans, and the impact on British life and society that occurred as a result of this. Due to the huge amount of evidence that exists around this period in British history, it provides an ideal opportunity for a visit to the Roman Bath House in Lancaster
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” (Luke 4: 18-19)
Each of us, by the way we live our lives, the way we treat others, and by our words and actions, show if we have an attitude of service. Often we are especially influenced by those whose actions speak powerfully of a life of service.
Christians believe that the Spirit of God is active in each person and, in a special way, in the community of believers, which is the Church. It is the work of the Spirit to enable people to hear God’s message and to live Jesus’ way of service.
This term we will:
Explore how the Church celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. Think about how we can celebrate his Resurrection
Know that Jesus appeared to some of his disciples on the road to Emmaus. Think about what we can learn from this experience
Know what Jesus said to Thomas when he did not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead. Reflect on the meaning of these words for us.
Know that Jesus returned to Heaven. Reflect on what this meas for us.
Know what happened at Pentecost. Reflect on how it changed the apostles.
