In this topic we talked about our experience of family and the joys and sorrows we may experience in the home. We talked in our lessons about what family means to us and why our home is such a special place. We discussed what God's vision is for a home and how God is the loving parent of the human family and Jesus was born and lived in a human family.
Our classroom display showcases some of the fantastic work from the children in Year 3 from our
first topic of this year 'Homes'.
At the end of our topic we celebrated our learning by gathering together and reflecting on our topic with a lovely 'Gweddiwn' reflection service outside as shown in the image below.
