Today, we explored the Torah teaching of 'giving the law.' (Exodus chapters 19&20)
We discussed how this Jewish story is so powerful that it has changed how people think all over the world today. We used Godly Play to explore, discuss and ponder about Moses before looking into the 'Ten Commandments'
1. Put God first.
2. Don’t worship anything that isn’t God.
3. Be serious when you say God’s name.
4. Have a special day for rest every week.
5. Respect your parents.
6. Do not murder.
7. Keep your promises.
8. Don’t steal.
9. Don’t lie.
10. Do not long for other people’s things.
We then engaged in verbal wondering, exploring which commandement we feel were the most important and whether we'd change any to meet the needs of today's world.
RE Experience Day (13/12/21)
Today we have spent time learning about the Christmas Story. Every class across the school focused on retelling the story from a different perspective. We became shepherds for the day and told the story of Baby Jesus from our point of view.
We also iced biscuits using icing, marshmallows and decorations. We enjoyed mixing and pouring the icing to create melted snowmen!
We spent some time making Christmas crafts which included paper decorations and cards. The children got creative with finger painting and very sparkly with bauble decorating.
