This term in RE we are thinking about in what ways is a church important to believers?
This week (4:1:21) we are asking the questions:
What does special mean to you?
What do the words ‘holy’ and ‘sacred’ mean?
To help the children to find these answers have a treasure hunt for special objects around your house.
Discuss how we treat these things in school and at home, how do we look after them? Is there anything special at home that you and your family take good care of? How do we expect others to treat these things? (safe place, keep it clean, wash hands.)
Make a picture/photo collage of these things. Can your child add their own caption justifying why they have chosen that object ie, why is it special?
Has your child ever heard the word ‘holy’ or sacred? Help your child to understand that these words mean that something is very special, and if you are a believer would make you think about God (as in ‘Holy Bible’). If you have had experience of going in a faith building you may be able to talk about some holy things in those places.
Please take a photo of any work completed and upload it to Dojo in their portfolio. It would be really helpful if you could add “RE” to the work. Many Thanks
