"We think about everyone in the world and know that everyone is special.  People in our world may look different and think differently, but we are all human and we respect everyone by treating them kindly and listening to what they have to say. This helps us to understand the difference in people and the world we live in. Some people, including Christians, believe that God helps them to make the right choices and listens to them when they pray. We are 21st Century thinkers!"

"We think about everyone in the world and know that everyone is special. People in our world may look different and think differently. Some people, called Christians, believe their God created the world and sent Jesus to Earth to help them make the right choices in how they live and act. A symbol of Christianity is the cross. Some people, called Jews, also believe that their God created the world. A symbol of Judaism is the Star of David. Some people may not believe in a God at all, but we are all human and we respect one another by treating them kindly and listening to what they have to say. This helps us to understand the difference in people and the world we live in. We are 21st Century thinkers!"

"We think about everyone in the world and know that everyone is special. People in our world may look different and think differently; Christians believe that their God sent Jesus to Earth to help them make the right choices in how they live and act. They read the Holy Bible to learn about God and express their commitment to God by worshipping at church. Jews believe that their God created the world. They read the Torah to learn how God expects them to behave and worship at their Synagogue. Muslims believe that their God – Allah - created the world and they worship Allah in a Mosque. Some people may not believe in a God at all, but everyone is human and we respect one another by treating them kindly and listening to what they have to say. This helps us to understand the similarities and differences in people and the world we live in. We are 21st Century thinkers!"

"We consider the similarities and differences in beliefs across the world religions, evaluate what is right and wrong, think for ourselves and respect our own and others’ opinions in a world that is changing. People in our world belong to different faiths, such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam, or are secular, with no faith. People look different and think differently in what they believe, and how they act. They express this through prayer, worship and way of life but everyone is human and we respect one another by treating them kindly and listening to what they have to say. We can evaluate what is right and wrong, respect our own and others’ opinions, and recognise that our world is changing. We are 21st Century thinkers!"

 

Oak

"We will explore challenging questions about the meaning and purpose of life by processing information, reasoning, questioning and evaluating issues of truth, belief and ethics. This will prepare us to appreciate our own and others’ beliefs and cultures in world religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam, as well as humanism, in order to see how these impact on individuals, communities and society in a world that is changing. Although people believe in different things, everyone is human and we respect one another by treating them kindly and listening to what they have to say. We are 21st Century thinkers!"

In Larch Year 1 and 2 have been learning about ‘What life may be like if you are Jewish’. They have been learning about different aspects of a Jewish person’s life, such as identifying symbols and artefacts that are significant to Jews, how they worship God at the Synagogue, follow the 10 Commandments and understanding how they use the Torah, yad, yarmulke and tallit. They visited the Norwich Synagogue and expanded their knowledge on what life is like if you’re Jewish by experiencing Shabbat and coming back to school to bake their own Challah!

Willow have been considering, ‘What Kind of World did Jesus Want?’ In this unit they have been exploring three main questions, who, ow and why Jesus wanted the world to be looked after. This was achieved through looking at poems and readings about the Creation Story and how God expected us to treat His world.

At first, they considered all the different things that exist in the world around them and whose responsibility it is to look after them. Through the Creation story, they learnt the Christian belief about the world and they began to think about why God created mankind.

Willow Class used the story of Adam and Eve to develop their understanding of how God intended mankind to behave, especially when faced with difficulty or temptation. The children enjoyed showing their understanding of temptation and Christian qualities through drama.
