In religion this week the children in Year 2 are learning to describe Christian beliefs about the Incarnation.
We used Godly play to retell the birth of Jesus.
The children used the characters to retell the story. We discussed:
I wonder what the place was like where Mary had her baby.
I wonder what the words ‘the Glory of the Lord shone around them’ means or what they may look like.
I wonder how the Shepherds found Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in Bethlehem.
I wonder what it means that Mary ‘remember all these things and thought deeply about them’
I wonder what you think deeply about.
We looked at the painting ‘Radient Light’ by Elizabeth Wang and discussed what was happening in the picture and why. We then created our own piece of art work to represent the Incarnation and described what we had drawn. We then discussed what we had included in our pictures and what Christians believe about the Incarnation.
