Our Big Question!
Our big question this term in RE is: ‘How should we live our lives?’ To help us answer this question, we have been exploring the rules and values we adhere to at home and at school. We know that these rules help us to grow and keep us safe. We considered what life might be like if there were no rules to help guide us and show us how to lead a good life.
Using the Diamond 9 technique, we looked closely at each of the Ten Commandments given to Moses and, in small teams, ranked them in order of relevance to modern life. Children were challenged to explain the relevance they assigned to each commandment. This activity generated a lively and thoughtful debate.
Children were then challenged to use their understanding of the Commandments to generate a new set of modern day commandments.
