Our focus in RE this half term is ‘Advent to Christmas’ in which we will have two main focuses. Our focus Scripture story will be Luke’s Gospel, re-telling and recognising events that lead up to the birth of Jesus so please do read this at home with your children as it will support them to recognise and retell the story accurately in class. We will also be working exploring the symbols, actions and words associated with Advent.
After a week spent on Judaism last term, where the children explored what Jewish people believe and and what it means to be Jewish, today they had a workshop based around the Jewish home. They learnt about the special signs and symbols, the language and the alphabet used when writing in Hebrew, as well as looking at artefacts and designing their own. It was very exciting and informative and we had lots of fun!
