After learning about Pentecost and how the Holy Spirit descended in the form of wind and tongues of fire to the disciples, we decided to create our own pieces of art to decorate ‘Our Altar’ in our classroom.

We used black card as the background and pasted a template of a dove in the centre. We then used orange, red and yellow coloured chalk to create our tongues of fire emerging from the dove. To soften the chalk markings we blended them together using our fingertips, this gave a lovely soft, more realistic look to our flames.

This year Pentecost Sunday will be on Sunday, 23 May.

We hope you like them 🙂
