Statement of Intent:
Christian Creation Story – In RE this half-term, we have focused on the Christian Creation Story. The children have read, watched and acted out the story. We found out what God created on each day of the week and made a wheel to help retell the story. We also took part in a class-based harvest festival, thanking God for food and everything else He provides.
Here we are – There has been a strong focus on settling the children back into school this half-term. We took part in a whole school integration topic, ‘Here We Are.’ We focused on integrating the children back into school and finding out about themselves and the ever-changing world that they live in.
Christian Creation Story – In RE this half term, we have looked at the Creation Story. The children have acted out the story and thought about their favourite day and given reasons for their choices. We have thought about God’s planet, his creation and how we can look after it for him. The children took part in a class-based harvest festival and we gave thanks to God for food and many other things that the children are thankful for.
The children wanted to give back to the local community so have made cards and pictures for the lonely and vulnerable people who aren’t able to get about due to Covid restrictions.
Feeling settled – In Character Development, we have been using a range of texts to help the children to settle back in school life. We have looked at how we are all unique and the special qualities that we all have.
Christian Creation Story – This half term, Class 3 have focused on the creation story in RE. We looked closely at the main parts of the story and decided why these were important to Christians. The children had some great explanations and have all worked very hard.
Feeling settled – There has been a big emphasis on settling the children into their new classes this year. We have worked a lot on: self-confidence, changes and our feelings. The children had great fun thinking about their family tree and what each person means to them. The children were able to talk openly about this and had some great ways as to why their family is important to them.
The Ten Commandments – In RE, we have been looking at God’s instructions (The Ten Commandments). The children took it in turns to be an ‘instructor’ in groups and had to describe a picture for their group to draw. Jack did a great job of describing his picture to the rest of the class.
Lily’s Poem – Lily wrote a beautiful poem on “How does God feel about His wonderful creation:
The Big Picture – In RE, Class 5 will be working on Christianity during this academic year. We will open our learning by looking at ‘The Big Picture’ where we will be studying main events in the Christian calendar. We will begin by doing work on ‘The Creation’ whilst asking the question ‘What does it mean if God is Holy and Loving?’.
