Term 6: Our RE week question this term is...
How and why do we celebrate special and sacred times?
Through this question we will explore Easter, Passover (Pesach) and Eid-ul-Fitr. We will explore the different stories, meanings and importance of each religious festival.
As our RE week was also the week before Easter we learnt about why Easter is so important for Christians. We also learnt about the Easter Story.
We will also at the 5 main religions and asking questions like:
Who is a Christian and what do they believe
Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?
What do different people believe about God?
Why do some people believe God exists?
We have been exploring important traditions, special days and festivals and objects that you can find in Judaism.
We have found out lots, including making our own Mezuzahs and placing our own special message inside, much like the Shema prayer. We have also been busy cooking a delicious Challah bread that Jewish families enjoy eating on the Shabbat.
