For the next four weeks, our RE topic is Life Choices. During this topic, we will be reflecting on our mission. We will be learning about what it means to be an apostle and a prophet and how we can each live out our mission in life. We will also be looking at the Sacrament of Marriage and the different religious symbols within it. The knowledge organiser for this topic is attached below.
To start our Life Choices topic, we looked at what the words care and commitment mean and how we need to show commitment in order for our friendships to thrive. We then thought about what it means to be a good friend, making links between beliefs and behaviour, before creating art work for our RE display.
We have been looking at the scripture Hosea 11:1-4. In the Bible God is often described as a loving parent. The prophet Hosea imagines God as a loving parent. Below is an example of work, where Hosea was linked to other pieces of scripture.
The word of the week is 'Inclusion'. During our liturgy, we considered what it means to be inclusion and we thought about how we, at St. Joseph's, can be inclusive. God made each of us to be different and we are all special in the eyes of God.
Below, I have attached some photos from this week's liturgy.
The word of the week is Belonging. During our liturgy, we considered what it means to belong. We belong to the Church's family, this makes us feel really special because we have a meaningful relationship with God. We belong to our school family; this helps us to grow in love in the spirit of Christ for the benefit of all.

For the next four weeks, our RE topic is Ourselves. During this topic, we will be reflecting on what it means to be one of God's children. We will be learning about different people and how their religious beliefs have shaped their lives. We will also be looking at the letters from Saint Paul to the Corinthians and the advice which he gave to them. The knowledge organiser for this topic is attached below.
