Year 3 'Open The Book'

On Thursday 23rd January, Year 3 were visited by Open the Book. They came in to tell us the story of Noah from the Bible. Some of the children got to take part too. This story is important to our current RE topic which asks the questions 'How is following God similar to a Christian wedding?'. We learnt that in this story, after the flood, God makes a promise to Noah that he will always keep people safe from harm. He created the rainbow as a symbol of this promise.
