Today is dedicated to Religious Education!

Today the children will be having a day full of RE activities. We will be thinking about the different religions we learnt about last year: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The children will also be thinking about the different festivals of light.

We want the children at home to also have a day full of RE, so here’s what we will be doing in class!

Jewish Star of David Meaning
Glenn Stanton: Is Christianity really shrinking? | Fox News

Today we will be starting with Judaism and taking a quiz to see what we remember!

Before you start the quiz, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What is Judaism?
  2. What are its followers called?
  3. What do Jewish people believe about God?
  4. Where do Jewish people worship?

  • The main messages of Christianity

Islam:

Can you answer the following questions?

  • What is Islam?
  • What are the followers called?
  • Where do Muslims go to pray?
  • What is the Muslim Holy Book called?

Create a poster explaining the 5 pillars of Islam to another student!

Stories…

Are there any stories that are important to Christians and Jews? Which ones can you remember? Look at the pictures below to help you!

Joseph - Lessons - Tes Teach

Create a comic strip to show what happens in each story?

Festivals of light

Can you name any religious festivals that involve or celebrate light?

Choose one of these festivals and write a description of how this festival is celebrated!

Supporting Learning At Home

Dear Parents/Carers,

In light of the current situation, the Year 3 teachers will be posting work on the blog to support children who are unwell or forced to isolate as a form of prevention.

Every day, we will upload the activities carried out in class that day on the Year 3 blog. In this way, the children at home will be accessing the same learning and activities as the children in their class. When the work is completed please send in your child’s work to the following email address:

year3@selsdonprimary.org.uk

We would like to thank you for your support and cooperation.
