This week during RE 6H discussed the creation story according to god and compared to the creation story according to science. Year 6 had a huge amount of questions on this subject. We completed a sequence grid detailing the things god created in the 6 days leading to the 7th day, on which he rested and declared this a holy day.
Take a look at the links which explain in detail verbally and visually the story of gods creation according to the book of Genesis in the bible and also the Big Bang theory and evolution. Leave us a comment and let us know what you believe about the creation of the world!
This week we have started a new RE topic and this term we will be focussing on Christianity. We will be exploring lots of different parts of the religion, specifically focussing on God. This will include looking at Baptism, the Church and also the differences between the different denominations of Christian such as Roman Catholic, Church of England, Baptist and Methodist.
Our focus will also be on God as creator, God ever present and God who acts and intervenes.
Yesterday we dicussed and considered the views and opinions of others about God. Some of the questions we asked were –
Do you believe in a Christian God?
Is God male or female?
Where is God?
What is God like?
How does science relate to God?
Does science disprove God? How?
Can God be experienced? How?
Well done for everyones input and sensitivity and understanding of other peoples opinions and views.
As part of our aspirations day in year 6, 6F have undertaken the 2nd of our 3 HF4U workshops. This weeks was all about jobs and careers. We looked at the huge amount of different jobs there are available and personal qualities needed. We discussed reasons why we work and discussed our dream career. Year 6 undertook lots of activities surrounding these objectives!
Can you remember any of the reasons why people decide to work?
