RE

The Good Samaritan

Link to United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 

UNCRC: Article 14 (freedom of thought, belief and religion) Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents to guide their child as they grow up. 

It is important that we help others, show forgiveness and show acts of kindness, especially during these difficult times. We need to show kindness to everyone (while keeping ourselves safe), even those we don’t always get along with. We can show kindness by treating each other with love and respect, without expecting anything in return. The term ‘Good Samaritan’ today refers to a person who helps others in a random act of kindness. It originated from the Parable of the Good Samaritan, a story that is very familiar to Christians. Please share ‘The Good Samaritan’ story with your child.

Can you answer and complete the following: 

  1. Have you ever needed help? 
  1. Can you make a list of the people who help you?  
  1. Choose one person who has helped you and write about what they did. 
  1. What does it mean to be kind? 
  1. Have you ever helped anyone? 
  1. How did it make them feel? 
  1. Would you only help your friends or would you help anyone who needed help? 

Have a look at the following video about acts of kindness 

  1. What acts of kindness did you see in the video?  
  1. Why did the images in the video change from black and white to colour? 
  1. Can you create a kindness jar? 

First decorate your jar. Then write down some different acts of kindness you could complete in the future. Fill the jar and then randomly select an act of kindness to complete.  

Here are some ideas of random acts of kindness: 

  • Say something nice 
  • Hold the door open for someone 
  • Volunteer to do a chore at home 
  • Ask how somebody is feeling today 
  • Raise money for charity 
  • Volunteer to pick up litter (with your grown up) 
  • Donate old clothes, toys and books to others 
  • Send a thank you note 
  • Give up your seat for someone who needs it.  
  • Smile!

Summer Home Learning (17th July)

So that you can keep your mind active over the holidays, we have made some maths and English Home Learning for the holiday.

We have also uploaded below the spelling mats for Y3 & 4, so you can perfect these words, and for Y5 & 6, so you can head start practicing the new statutory words.

Lots of children loved competing in the reading trails that we ran this year. Below is a link to the reading trail for Year 5 so you can get a head start over the holidays!

Below is a Summer Holiday Passport. It contains fun activities for each Year Group to tick off over the summer holidays.
