Exploring Together Big Christmas RE

‘Why is Christmas so important for Christians?’

The whole year group took part in our Big Christmas RE lesson in the hall, exploring the big question ‘Why is Christmas so important for Christians?’  We watched some videos, telling us the Bible story and the events surrounding Jesus’ birth. The children could use four different zones to explore and share their thoughts on our big question. In the colour zone, the children could draw pictures – some lovely thoughts about how Jesus birth led ultimately to his death on the cross, showing the true significance for Christians. In the word zone, children wrote prayers, carols and short stories. They could sequence the Bible story with a cut and stick activity. In the busy zone, there was Lego and playdough to create artefacts to show their understanding of the significance of Christmas. In the reflection zone, children shared their personal thoughts about Jesus’ birth.
