Hi everyone and welcome back to RE for this week. This half term we will look at 'Respect for all' and what makes a respectful place.
What things are precious to you. Have a think and write them down. You need to think of at least 5 things.
Now, look at your list. How many of those things are precious in a way that makes you think about something or someone else? By saying precious, I wanted you to think of thgs like happines or joy as opposed to a gold bracelet or lots of money.
Make a list of things that sit in either of these two categories:
Precious l Expensive
Have a chat with someone in your home about how the two categories are similar but different.
I have a box of items that I treasure. I have pictures of my children, pictures of my where I lived as a child, an old conker that I won lots of conker games with and a medal that my grandad won in WW11. Have a think of why I may have each of these items.
Produce a list of 10 items that you value. Things that are precious to you. Items that you might keep in your own treasure box. After you have listed them, write next to each one why the item is precious to you.
Extra task - Tell your grown up what your list is an see if they can work pout why the item is precious to you.
Miss Leach and I (Mr Jones) hope you enjoy this lesson.
Did you notice lots of references in the prayer to Jesus's death on the cross, and to his Resurrection, and how Christian believe this saves them from sin? If not, have another look at the video!
The Eucharistic prayer can take many forms; it doesn't always have exactly the same words in every service. However, it always has the important parts which talk about the saving of people by Christ's death and Resurrection.
Now for your task. Below is a copy of a Eucharistic prayer, this time in written form. Your task is to read and find the parts that talk about these things:
a) Words about giving thanks.
b) Words that talk about Jesus's death.
c) Words that talk about Jesus's rising from the dead.
d) Words that talk about saving, or salvation.
If you're able to print the sheet, then you could annotate it to find the part you need. If not, you can still look for the parts, and copy them, and explain what they mean.
This isn't an easy lesson to do online, because if we were at school, we would do lots of discussion about the text. But I'm sure you can have a good go at it. Here is the file with the Eucharistic prayer printed:
Good luck with the task, and thank you for doing this lesson.

Hi Year 5!
This week for R.E. we are going to continue to think about the Easter story. First, what did you think about the Joshua stories last time? They were designed to illustrate how Christians think about Jesus as helping and saving others - Joshua in the stories acts in the same way as Christians think of Jesus acting - he helps and saves people.
The story of Easter is central to this belief in Jesus as someone who saves - a saviour. The events of Easter are so important in the Christian faith that many churches remember them far more often than just at Easter time - they remember them every week, or in some churches even every day.
To help Christians remember and think about the events of Easter, they often hold a special service which centres around the Last Supper. This service has many names; here are a few:
The Lord's Supper
Here are three videos for you to watch to learn about this special church service:
There's a lot to take in and think about in those videos, so that's enough for this week. Next week we will focus in on one particular part of the Communion service and learn about it in more detail.
Thanks for doing this lesson!
