This half-term, our theme for RE is 'How does Faith help when life gets hard?'
LO: I can describe 3 ways religions guide people in how to respond to good news or bad.
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The psalm is telling you to thank God. Praying to God can be one way to say thank you when something good happens in your life. Name 3 things the psalm says you should be thankful for.
There are 31 benefits of being grateful that have been proved by science! Read more about them here: https://www.happierhuman.com/benefits-of-gratitude/
There is a diagram to summarise them at the bottom of the page.
Write down 5 things that you are grateful for. You might find when you get started you can think of many, many more than 5! If so, keep going! This is a great way to boost your mood.
Write your own prayer to thank God for something good that has happened for you recently. You can use ideas from our letter writing lessons earlier in the week.
How might a Christian respond to receiving bad news? Can you describe 3 ways religions guide people in how to respond to good news or bad?
This term in DT, you are going to design and make your dream house! It won't be big enough to live in unfortunately, but maybe one day you can bring your model to an architect and they will build it for you! I know some of you have aspirations to be architects, so this could be a starting point.
You will make your dream house over the next few weeks out of cardboard, tubs and other junk modelling materials, so please start collecting them now!
This week, you are going to begin by evaluating existing products and finding out what customers want. Below you will see some dream houses. You can also evaluate your own house.
Choose one of the pictures, or your own house, and label or make a list of:
- materials used
- methods of fixing
- methods of finishing (e.g. paint, polish, tile)
- who has this house been designed for?
Give your opinions about the design of the product: what you like about the design; what “works well”; how well it achieves its purpose; how “original”/innovative is it?
Now, you need to design a survey to find out what is most important to people when choosing a house. Write up to 5 questions with limited responses, for example:
- How many bedrooms would you like? 1, 2, 3 or 4?
- Would you like a swimming pool? yes/no
- What colour would you like the house to be? white/brick/purple
- How many storeys would you like? 1,2 or 3
- Would you require a garage? yes/no
Finally, answer these questions (I have done a few for you where everyone's answer will be the same):
What I am designing and making (the product): A model of a dream house
Who I am making it for (the users):
What it is for and what it should do (its purpose/purposes): It is to be used by an architect to build a dream house
How it is suitable for the person/people I am making it for (give 5 points):
