Our visit to the church

We took some of the children to visit St Helen's church in Pinxton. We had a really fun time. On the walk to church the children listened carefully to the grown ups. When we got to the church we met Penny who is the vicar. She showed us lots of things around the church. We learned about the stained glass window showing The Last Supper. Penny let us touch one of the brass crosses to find out what it feels like. We then went to have a look at the font. Penny had a doll, and she showed us what she does to babies at their christening. Penny then read us a story about the Wise man and the Foolish man, and we sang a song about them. Here is the song we sang at church. Who can remember the actions?

 

The Wise Man Built His House Upon The Rock

The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
And the rain came tumbling down.
And the rain came down and the floods came up,
The rain came down and the floods came up,
The rain came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the rock stood firm.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
And the rain came tumbling down.
And the rain came down and the floods came up,
The rain came down and the floods came up,
The rain came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the sand fell flat.
