Rules

Our current R.E. topic is Rules. Christians believe in Christ's rule of love of God and neighbour, and that this offers freedom and happiness. Through conscience, Christains follow God's law, and through love express sorrow for wrong doing. The Sacrament of Reconciliation grants pardon and peace.

 

In this topic, we learn that God helps us to choose well and be sorry, and that God forgives us. We will learn the reasons for the rules in the Christain family.

 

 

If you love me, you will obey my commandments

Acts 2: 32

 

As we are learning from home right now, I have added the Notebook lessons based on what I would have been teaching you. I've adapted the lessons so that you can complete the lessons with your family at home - see the attachments below. The activities that we would have been learning each week in school are all here. See if you can have a go at them from home. You could share your work on our Year 2 class page / Year 2 Dojo page.

 

  • Explore - how rules can help us at home and in school. 
  • Lesson 1 - God's rule for people.
  • Lesson 2 - breaking rules.
  • Lesson 3 - being sorry and forgiving others.
  • Lesson 4 - Jesus teaches his disciples about forgiving.
  • Lesson 5 - the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
  • Lesson 6 - sign of peace.
  • Respond - Remembering, celebrating and responding to how rules can help at home and in school and the reasons for rules in the Christian family.

 

An outline of the teaching of the Church covered in Rules:

  • Jesus' commandment to love God and one another.
  • Jesus' commandment to forgive each other.
  • Sin, the intention to do wrong deliberately.
  • Examination of conscience.
  • A prayer of sorrow.
  • Sacrament of Reconciliation: repentance, disclosure of sin, absolution and reparation.
  • The Sign of Peace at Mass.

Here are the lessons for our Rules topic

Pentecost - Spread the Word

Spread the Word

Our R.E. topic to start this term was Spread the Word. The gift of Holy Spirit, which is celebrated at Pentecost, strengthens Christians to share in the mission of the Church by spreading the Good News of the message of love of the risen Christ. The Good News is that Jesus is risen and is alive.

 

In this topic, we recognised the new life of Jesus and how the Holy Spirit helps Christians. On Easter Sunday, we remembered that Jesus rose from the dead. We recognised Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit and that, on the Feast of Ascension, the Church celebrates Jesus' return to his Father in Heaven. We are thinking about what happened on the first Pentecost day, and that Jesus promised us new life and ways of spreading the Good News about Jesus.

 

Pentecost is a Holy day - the feast of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost is a Greek word meaning the fiftieth day. At the feast of Pentecost, the Jewish people celebrated God's gift of the law, God's rules for them to help them to be happy.

 

God raised this very Jesus from the death and we are all witnesses to this fact.

Acts 2: 32

 

As we are learning from home right now, I have added the Notebook lessons based on what I would have been teaching you.

  • Explore - the importance of passing on messages. 
  • Lesson 1 - the Good News is that Jesus is risen and is alive.
  • Lesson 2 - the Good News is that Jesus is promising to send the Holy Spirit to his friends and to us.
  • Lesson 3 - the Good News is that Jesus has returned to his Father in Heaven and Christians hope that they will follow after their life on earth.
  • Lesson 4 - the Good News is that the Holy Spirit is a helper and guide for everyone, so they can spread God's love.
  • Lesson 5 - the Good News is that Jesus has promised us new life with him in Heaven when we die.
  • Lesson 6 - the Good News is that the Holy Spirit helps us share God's love by the way we live our lives.
  • Respond - Remembering, celebrating and responding to passing on messages, and Pentecost, spreading the Gospel message through the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is a quiet time for reflecting on what you have learned throughout our Spread the Word topic. Think about how you can spread a word of love. Think about what you could do, every day, to spread love.

 

An outline of the teaching of the Church covered in Spread the Word:

  • Jesus promises to send the Holy Spirit.
  • The Ascension; Jesus returns to his Father in Heaven.
  • Pentecost: the gift of the Holy Spirit for all time.
  • Prayer to the Holy Spirit.
  • The Power of the Holy Spirit in daily life.
  • Christians pass on the Good News of Jesus through the Holy Spirit.
  • The Resurrection of the dead.
