This was the question we looked at in today’s RE lesson in Year Six. What does God like or hate about the world? We discussed this and then looked at proverbs which described God’s dislikes and wrote our interpretation.
We are looked at the key question, ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus dies Good Friday?’ The pupils gave excellent thoughtful responses. Well done Year Four.
I was delighted to see the wonderful work happening in RE this week in Year Six on a learning walk with Mrs Greenfield, our Vice Chair Governor. The pupils were so knowledgable about the importance of Cathedrals in Christianity. They articulately explained their answers and drew on lots of knowledge built up over KS2.
What a delight to see Year Two discussing the different ways Christians shows their belief in God. The pupils shared lots of different ways and linked their ideas to how other religions show their beliefs. Mrs Greenfield, our Vice Chair Governor, was blown away by the pupils on her RE learning walk with Ms Steele.
To celebrate World Religion Day pupils in Year Four have been researching different religions in their pairs. The pupils presented their research to the class as an informative poster.
In RE this afternoon, Year Five are continuing to look at Christianity. The children used role play to interview some key witnesses to help us answer our half term question of ‘Was Jesus the Messiah?’ We’ve also examined some Bible extracts to help us build up our evidence of what Christian’s may believe.
In RE, Year Six have looked at what some Christian’s believe God is like and what it means for him to be holy and loving. Through looking at extracts from the bible we picked out evidence that shows what God may be like and what he does. We also picked out words to describe him.
To start our Incarnation topic in RE, we discussed what sort of leader the People of God would have been looking for to guide them. We created wanted posters to show this using words such as loyal, faithful, loving and forgiving.
Our Year Six pupils narrated the nativity in St Mary’s church beautifully today. As is the school’s tradition, the reception children acted out the nativity and took centre stage. We were also led in a prayer by Father Miguel. A reminder for many Year Six families of the passing of time as they think back to when their children played the nativity roles 6 years ago children on the same stage.
Year One explored what might happen during a Christian church service. We sang, lit a special candle and even wrote our own prayers.
Year 6 have been explaining Muslim beliefs about God, the Prophet and the Holy Qur’an. We discussed Tawhid and how Islam is a monotheistic religion. We then looked at how there are two denominations of Islam and why this happened.n RE, Year 6 have been explaining Muslim beliefs about God, the Prophet and the Holy Qur’an.
