Our RE topic for the next four weeks is based around the theme of Waiting.
We will be considering the big question:
We shall be exploring gifts, given and received, are a sign and expression of love. The children will learn that Advent is a time when we appreciate the love in our lives and prepare to celebrate love becoming a reality in the person of Jesus. Christians at Christmas celebrate the gift of Jesus, given by God as a sign and expression of God’s love. Giving and receiving reflects the truth that all life is given by God and life is given meaning through the gift of Jesus.
We shall be focuses on the following scriptures:
Luke 1: 26-31, Luke 1: 39-45, Luke 2: 1-7, Luke 2: 8-20
Key words for the topic are:
|waiting, preparing, messenger, visit, celebrate, Advent, Jesus, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, shepherds, angels, Christmas, Bethlehem, manger, worship, wreath|
For their RE home learning, I challenge the children to create an advent wreath. This should show the key symbols (1 pink , 3 purple and 1 white candle).
