In Oak we have been discussing the crucifixion and considering the emotional impact on his friends. This diary (by Murray) is written from the perspective of Mary Magdelene.

"Dear diary,

It's been two long days since Jesus died. I pretty much watched him die. I felt guilty, as if I could have stopped him, just said no.  As I walk around my every day life feeling depressed and guilty, confused, I can't get my head around how no one cares a King has just been crucified.  As I washed his body I looked at his hands and feet, holes of courage there.  I can just write about what happened next. 

 

Sunday

I woke up quite early on that day.  I could hear the sparrows' sweet chirp coming from the garden and people just living life normally, but I've already written about that. I decided to go to the garden to try to cheer me up. I noticed sets of red and silver armour folded on the floor.  I looked over the tomb to see the boulder moved and his body gone..."

In Oak Class the children have created a poster to show what they know about our topic of the Rainforest. They were in small groups and so they had to plan what they were going to do and then allocate jobs. Everyone had a role to play and the class were really great at including everyone. They show what the children now know about the Rainforest, its resources and the dangers to it due to human involvement.

Year 5 arrived safely at  Leeson House. After dropping off our bags we all went on a long walk to Dancing Ledge. Amelia, our guide, told us lots of exciting stories about smugglers, priests and German bombers. Sockit the puppet also found out about how limestone was made 100 million years ago. We had a picnic lunch at Dancing Ledge and then we had to walk up some very big hills to get back to the house. When we got back we had to make our beds after we had practised the fire drill.  Sockit helped!

 

After tea we all played some team games and had a go at nighttime orienteering. Hot chocolate, biscuits and a quick story and then it was time for bed.  We all got to sleep - eventually!

This morning the children had to repack  their bags - but not everything fitted in as well this time. A hearty breakfast fuelled us all up for pond dipping and environmental art. The weather stayed fine and dry so we're not too muddy. 

Planning environmental art, art work and checking out the wildlife.
