RE in Year Two

Year 2 RE

Our first RE topic of the spring term is based around the theme of Books.

Key words for the topic are: 

Scripture, lectern, Gospel, Bible, New Testament, Old Testament, genre, thurible, missal, Church, parish family

In particular, we will be discussing the meaning of the words thurible and missal.  If you visit church together, see if you can find the church thurible or missal to talk about with your child.

We will be considering the big question Why do we need books?

The children will also read Matthew’s gospel (Matthew 3; 13-17) to find out about the Baptism of Jesus.

RE home learning

For their RE home learning, enjoy sharing books together and bring in a book that is special to you during the first week of term. The children will talk about these favourite books together in class.
