RE

Our theme in R.E. this half term is WISDOM. We will be thinking about ways in which we can be learn from God's wisdom. We will also think about how we can gain wisdom and it's benefits. 

In class we will learning about what it means to be 'Called by God' 

 

  • What does it mean to be called by God?
  • In what ways does God call people? How does God speak to people?
  • What sort of tasks does God call people to do?
  • Who has been/or could be called by God?  
  •  
  • We will explore the stories of those called by God. Most notably Moses in the Old Testament and how he shared the ten commandments with the Hebrews. This links with our work on wisdom as we will be learning how we can use God's laws to help us lead good lives.
