We have been using different voices and expression to help us get into the roles of the characters. See if you can act out the story with your family at home.

We made a list of what our parents do for us and then thought about what God might do for Christians. Some of our ideas were - keep us safe, provide us with food and water and keep us healthy. 
Remember to start collecting items for Art week. We could like children to bring in photographs of themselves and their family and a picture or wrapper of their favourite chocolate bar, sweets or biscuit. Thank you!
