At Spilsby Primary, we learn about RE to help our children empathise, respect others and explore deep human concepts. The Love to Celebrate projects help children learn about world religions, diversity and faith.
Giving a gift to at least one person during Purim is called Mishloach Manot. It is a mitzvah (rule) of Judaism. Jews give inexpensive gifts including two foods, such as hamantaschen, sweets, fruit, nuts or bread to make sure that everyone has enough food for the Purim celebrations. Children in Year 1 iced biscuits and gave them to a friend we thought about how it felt to give a gift to someone else.
Year 1 have been learning about the Jewish festival of Purim. The Purim story features a villain called Haman, and everyone in the synagogue boos, hisses, stamps their feet and uses noisemakers (called graggers) and cymbals whenever the name of Haman is mentioned during the service. We have made our own graggers using craft materials.
End of term treat for year 3 to tie up this term's RE unit of Lent.
Year 4 have been using role paly to act out the story of Gilgamesh and the Cedar Forest.
In RE this half term, year 1, will be learning about the festival of Milad un Nabi which commemorates the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. During the lesson the children thought about ‘Why we celebrate our birthdays? and 'How it feels to share a special celebration together?’ The children designed birthday cards to give out throughout the year to their friends. As the term progresses we are going to find out more about a person who is special to Muslims, Muhammad, whose birthday is celebrated during Milad un Nabi.
Year 4 are learning about Shabbat. They discussed why rest is needed and created their own animals and plants as happened in the story of creation.
Some important questions to be answered by year 2 in RE this afternoon! Looking forward to see how these pages fill up with thoughts. #Buddhism #alwayschoosekindness
