This term, our Big Question is 'Why does Easter matter to Christians?". The children became experts in the story of the Holy Week and Palm Sunday last term and are ready to apply their knowledge to Easter. 

This week we have been exploring why we celebrate Easter with Easter eggs and hot cross buns and exploring the symbolism behind these. We have learnt about traditional Ukrainian Pysanky eggs and decorated our own.

In Collective Worship, our current value is Justice

Matthew 21.12-13: …my Temple will be called a house of prayer. But you have turned it into a hideout for thieves. (Jesus turning the tables in the temple)

Micah 6. 9: What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Matthew 5. 13-14: ‘You are the salt of the earth………… You are the light of the world.’

Cedar

Religious Education

In their RE topic last term of Salvation, Cedar Class explored the big question: 

What Would Jesus Do?

We have discussed how we could put the teachings of Jesus into practise, and how these create good foundations for living. Cedar Class have studied the various statements made by Jesus in The Sermon on the Mount and what the hidden meanings of them could be. In particular, we studied The Wise and Foolish Builders and how we can learn from the messages of this parable. Cedar have also looked at the five components of prayers and tried to find them in The Lord's Prayer:

  • Adoration
  • Confession
  • Thanksgiving
  • Supplication
  • Intersession

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

What did Jesus do to save human beings?

Cedar Class have been learning about Jesus' last days and the reasons behind what happened. They have learnt about what happened in Gethsemane, how Jesus was condemned by Sanhedrin, his last supper and the crucifixion. The children have also been exploring the varying perspectives of Christians on why Jesus died and learning about sacrifice.

Our Values

Our value this term is Justice. We have been learning all about personal responsibility, how people campaign for global justice and how we can make a fairer world.

"For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them" Isaiah 61:8

"And endurance produces character, and character produces hope" Romans 5:4.

Our Collective Worship focus last term was Generosity. We enjoyed exploring how we can demonstrate generosity in our lives to our families and friends, and talked about the meanings behind important scripture.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” Matthew 7:12 and Luke 6:31.

“Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely” Psalm 112:5.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
