Over the course of Year 6 we will be looking at Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Our focus lines of enquiry over the year will be:
We planned and wrote out own worship assembly about thankfulness and delivered it to the rest of the school and to our parents. We thought about the different ways that we could show thankfulness: being thankful for what others do, being thankful for the world that God has made, being thankful for what we have and not being jealous of others, being thankful for the opportunities we get in life and being thankful for the work that charities do to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
First Half of the Autumn Term - Hinduism
This half term we have been learning about Hinduism and using it as a focus to consider the question: Do we have to live our lives in a certain way? So far we have thought and learned the following things....
We talked about what the word 'milestone' meant.
We realised that some milestones in our lives we shared with lots of other people in the class but others were just special to us, our family or our religion. We talked about how some significant events were similar even they were celebrated or shown in different ways.
Second Half of the Autumn Term.
Our focus question was: How do Christians prepare for Advent. We focused our learning around the significant figures in the period of Advent: The Prophets, John the Baptist and Mary. before recapping on the importance of the church and how Advent is reflect in the church. We thought about and reflected how their lives were reflected in our own. We also learnt that Advent was a time of hope and thought about what our hopes and dreams are for the future.
