Pentecost:

We have been learning about the story of Pentecost and how Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help the disciples spread the Good News. We have listened to the story, we have acted it out and thought about how the disciples felt when the Holy Spirit came. We made Holy Spirit flags and streamers and watched them move in the wind. We thought about how the Holy Spirit is like the wind, you can’t see it, but you can feel it and see its actions. We drew pictures of actions we make that are guided by the Holy Spirit (like helping our mum and making friends) and shared these during our class worship.
