Religious Education work examples Spring

In the Spring term we studied the three themes of Local Church (Community), Eucharist (Relating) and Lent/Easter (Giving). Each class  approached the themes through different topics.

Spring 1 Year 1 Local Church - Community - Special People

All families who live or worship in a parish are part of the parish family.  As in any family there are people who have special roles within the parish.  On Sunday, in church, we meet people who do special jobs as we gather to celebrate the Good News of Jesus.  There are special people in our lives who are there to help us.

 

In this topic the learning outcomes were to know and understand:

  • That there are special people in our lives who are there to help us.
  • That on Sunday, in church, we meet people who do special jobs as we gather to celebrate the Good News of Jesus.

This half term, Y3 thought about the importance of listening and sharing. We studied examples of how we might listen and share in our every day lives and thought about the different ways in which the Gospels invite us to listen and share as Catholics. We also learnt about the important role feasts and holy days play in the Church's calender.

Spring 2: Lent/Easter - Giving and Sacrifice

Lent is the season when Christians try to focus on giving.  This helps us to identify with the complete sacrifice of Jesus which is remembered in the liturgy of Holy Week, especially the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday – Easter Sunday). In this important season, the children produced some thoughtful work as we prepared for Holy Week.

In this topic, the learning outcomes were to know and understand:

  • The importance and joy of giving. - Explore
  • That Lent is a time of giving in preparation for the sacrifice of Jesus. - Reveal
  • To link the sacrifice of Jesus within our own lives and evaluate our role as Catholics. – Respond.
