Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Jonah and the big fish!

This week Year 1 have been learning about the Bible story: Jonah and the big fish.

We all pretended to be Jonah and we acted out parts of the story, then we thought carefully about how Jonah felt.

God tells Jonah to go to Ninevah, but Jonah does not want to listen.

"Jonah is cross because he doesn't want to do what God is telling him to."

Jonah decides to runaway and hide from God.

"Jonah feels happy because he is running away from Ninevah."

Jonah gets on a boat to sail away. He falls asleep.

"Jonah feels safe on the boat."

God sends a storm and the other people on the boat blame Jonah and throw him overboard! A big fish swallows him and he ends up inside its belly!

"Jonah feels sorry and prays to God inside the fish."

The fish spits Jonah out on the beach.

"Jonah feels happy, but sticky!"

Then  we wrote about how Jonah felt when he was inside the fish.

Vania has used her phonic knowledge to help with her spellings.

Leanna has explained why Jonah is sorry and even tried writing 'Ninevah'.
