RE

Our theme in R.E. this half term is COURAGE. We will be thinking about all times and experiences we need to be brave and have courage. We will also think about how we can be patience, confidence and be apologetic when we aren't as brave as we could be. 

In class we will be learning all about rules. This will be explored through rules in our lives, as well as Christian rules for living. We will also explore the rules in other world religions such as Sikhism, Judaism and Islam.

Key Questions:

  • What are rules?
  • Why do we have rules?
  • Who makes the rules?
  • Who keeps the rules?
  • Is there a difference between rules and laws?
  • Who makes the law?
  • What would happen if there were no rules/laws?
  • Are the ten commandments still as relevant today?
  • Why did Jesus bring a new commandment?
  • Why do religions have rules?
