Samuel Speaks to God

‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’”

In Year 3 we have been studying the story of Samuel. We have read the story and discussed the following key questions;

  1. Why didn't Samuel recognise the voice of God?  
  2. Why did Eli recognise eventually that God was calling Samuel? 
  3. What did Eli tell Samuel to say? Why are these words important?
  4. What changes will it make to Samuel if he really listens to God?
  5. Do you think God still calls people to follow him today? If so how?

 ​​

Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek Mythology, was involved in some of the most intriguing tales of the times.
 
From his birth to his death, Pegasus represented power, wisdom and remained a mysterious creature capable of everything. Symbolizing the divine inspiration or the journey to heaven, since riding him was synonymous to “flying” to the heavens.
Pegasus was represented as a goodhearted, gentle creature, somewhat naive but always eager to help.
 
For his service and loyalty, Zeus honored him with a special immortality turning Pegasus into a constellation on the last day of his life.

​​Writing         ​
 
As we are constantly striving for higher standards with our writing, we have introduced a set of `non-negotiables` for writing. We expect the children to remember these every time they write and to check their work independently. If they need to edit, they can do so which is an important part of being accountable for their own learning. This will help the children to focus on their new writing targets to improve their writing even further.​
 
Non–negotiables in writing ​
Begin every sentence with a capital letter. 
Always punctuate the end of a sentence.
Never start sentences with `and` or `because`.
Always use a capital letter for `I`.
All proper nouns should begin with capital letters.
Writing must be clear and easy to read.
Always check that your writing makes sense.
