In Year 1 this term we have been learning about Confirmation. As part of this unit of work, we’ve been learning about Pentecost and when the disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Followers of Jesus recognise symbols from the Bible to remind them of the Holy Spirit. Some symbols for the Holy Spirit are wind, fire and a dove. Wind reminds people of the noise the followers of Jesus heard when the Holy Spirit first came to them at Pentecost. Fire reminds people of the flames that appeared and rested above the heads of each of the followers of Jesus at Pentecost. A dove is recognised as a symbol of the Holy Spirit from stories in the Bible.
