Where Learning is An Adventure


Riveting RE

This week, Year 3 immersed themselves in Christianity, specifically stories from the Bible, for their RE day. We had lots of thoughtful discussions about what comes to mind when we hear the words Christianity and Bible, before moving on to look at the story of Noah's Ark in the Old Testament. Children then responded creatively in whatever form they chose, with many opting to draw a rainbow and annotating it with what they had learned from the story about God. Through drama, children put themselves into the parable of the Good Samaritan from the New Testament. They then thought further about how this relates to us today and who constitutes 'our neighbour'. The children were great at describing ways they could help others and acknowledged that they should try to help everyone. To conclude, children looked at a New Testament letter, which discusses the fruit of the Spirit. Children reflected on how the fruit of the Spirit links to our school values and rights and responsibilities. They then annotated their own fruit to this end, before using it to decorate our Year 3 tree!
