Week commencing 4th May 2020
Our current topic in RE is Pentecost.
Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days after Easter. Pentecost is seen as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church's mission to the world.
The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Pentecost is a happy festival. Ministers in church often wear robes with red in the design as a symbol of the flames in which the Holy Spirit came to earth.
The Coming of the Holy Spirit
Watch the video all about the coming of the Holy Spirit. Use the link below. If it doesn't work, go to YouTube and search 'Pentecost for children' and it should be the fourth video but any of the top four will explain the story.
Look at the word document below. It has a painting of the apostles receiving the Holy Spirit. Imagine you were there. What would you be thinking and feeling? Can you retell the story of the apostles receiving the Holy Spirit? You can also look at the PowerPoint to help you retell the story.
Week commencing 20th April 2020
Our next RE topic is all about Hindusim.
I have attached a PowerPoint to look through to help you learn all about the Hindu faith. When you read it, make notes in your red books about their faith, such as any special signs, symbols or words.
