This term, our Big Question is "What do Christians believe God is like?"

We have started by looking at an image of the Parable of the Lost Son.  We imagined what else might have been in the picture by looking for clues.  We noticed that the man being hugged looked like he was wearing rags, which made us think he might be cold or poorly.

In Collective Worship, our current value is Compassion. 

We have been thinking about how Jesus put the needs of others before his own and showed compassion towards them.  We thought about what people and animals need to feel loved.

Mark 6.34: And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.'

In RE this term we have been exploring the big question:

What is it like for Christians to follow God?

During our RE lessons, we have been learning about the Old Testament. The Old Testament explains that the People of God are meant to show the benefits of having a relationship with God, and to attract all other nations to worshipping God. â€‹

Christians believe through Jesus, all people can become the People of God.

During our learning, we have looked at God's covenant with Noah and Abraham and how practising Chrstians look to the Old Testament for guidance. As part of this, we have also looked at the role of the Salvation Army and how their faith guides them to be supportive, caring individuals who benefit the community in which they live. Additionally, we analysed the promises made during a traditional Christian Wedding ceremony.

In Collective Worship, our current value is Compassion. We have been thinking about how Jesus put the needs of others before his own and showed his love for them by being compassionate. We have also been focusing on noticing a need to ensure that we take time out of our days to help others. 

Mark 6.34: And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.'

We have reflected on those who are ill or sick using marbles during one of our prayer space activites for the term so far. We try to be mindful of our value during each praer space session in our day.

We also considered stray animals and how pets need more than just food. We looked at the work of the RSPCA and considered how we might help animals that are in need.

 

We focused on what it would be like to not have any shoes by walking along the floor aver hard ad soft surfaces. Even though it was fun, we reflected on how difficult it would be to not have any shoes over the Winter period. We then discussed the possibility of donating shoes or clothing that no longer fitted to charities like the Salvation Army.

We considered the story of Jesus healing the sick, inlcuding those with leprosy. We got into role as Jesus and created a teddy bear with "leprosy" (cornflower stains). Jesus "healed" the sick bear.
