RE week 4

Lesson Objective: I can identify features on the inside of a church


Why is Church important?

Regardless of religion or sect, the church plays an important and very influential role in the way people live or conduct their lives. For many people, the church serves as a place for learning the stories that relate to one’s God and one’s own beliefs. For this reason alone, the church is considered an important part of people’s lives.



This week, we are going to take a look inside a church and find out the important parts of a church.

Take a look at the slide show below and when it's finished you can draw another picture of the inside of your church and label the important parts of your church. 

Lesson Objective: I can create my own symbol to represent the important things in my life including people, pets, hobbies or faith.

Last week, Mrs Hill asked you to draw the important parts of a church and label them. This week we are going to look at the importance of Christian symbols and what they represent.


What are the Christian symbols?

The cross is the main symbol. It reminds Christians that Jesus died on the cross to save them.

The dove is the symbol of the holy spirit and peace.

The fish symbol was created using the Greek letters which spell out ICHTHUS : Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour.

Christians devised a secret code. They drew half a fish in the sand. If a person completed the fish, they knew he or she was a believer too.
