Here is the link to a video that will teach you everything you need to know for this lesson, just as I would teach you in class: https://vimeo.com/507468794

After you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions on the attached worksheet. Afterwards, you can mark your answers and ask a grown up to go through any mistakes you made that you don’t know how to correct.

Attached is a true or false for you to answer. Work through it and explain your answers. This is just a discussion to have with somebody else, you do not need to write anything down.

RE

This week in RE, we are going to be thinking about life as a journey and some of the obstacles we encounter along the way and how we deal with them.

Use the quotation ‘Life is like a box of chocolates’ and put it on a piece of paper. Work with your child to create new  phrases using the sentence opener 'Life is like...'.

Do you both agree with each other? Why?

Do you both disagree? Why?

Most religions tend to view life as a journey.

Find a quiet place and think about your life so far

What have been the high points and the low points?

How could your journey be represented on paper?

I would like you to draw and decorate your own journey of life on the map provided or just a plain piece of paper if you do not have a printer.

Remember to send these to our email address so that I can see them.
