Home and Family - Judaism and Christianity
We have been learning why a Mezuzah is important to a Jewish family. We designed our own mezuzahs using pictures to help us spot common features. We really liked drawing the Star of David!
We even had a look at a real mezuzah!
We learned that both Christians and Jews believe in God. We then learned about their beliefs about God and what he’s like. We reflected on this by thinking about where God might be.
Christianity - Giving and Receiving at Christmas
We went to visit the volunteers at the Keswick warehouse for the shoebox appeal. We got the opportunity to pack some boxes as well as learning what they do.
We were learning how Christians give at Christmas, we made our own shoeboxes in groups and drew pictures to go in the box.
Christianity - Jesus
We’ve been learning about the stories Jesus told- here we are acting out ‘the Good Samaritan’.
We went to visit Godfrey over at the church. He told us the story of Mary and Martha which is represented on a stained glass window in the back of the church.
We loved the stained glass windows in the church and we decided to make our own.
