Over the next few weeks, we are going to be exploring the ideas of ‘Freedom’ and ‘Justice’ and learn about how different world religions view these concepts. Below is a PPT presentation about ‘Justice’ and two stories from Christianity/Judaism and Buddhism. Read the stories and decide whether justice was served in these stories. Can you think of any other stories where justice or injustice was a theme?

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be exploring the ideas of ‘Freedom’ and ‘Justice’ and learn about how different world religions view these concepts. Below is a PPT presentation about freedom and two follow up activity sheets. Having learnt about how different religions view the idea of ‘Freedom’, we would like you to write a paragraph about what YOU think about ‘Freedom’. You could share your thoughts on the class blog.

This Friday is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. One of the famous faces of WWI was Dame Vera Lynn who recently turned 103 years old! Here is a recent new article that you might like to read about her:
Dame Vera Lynn sang songs that aimed to keep up the spirits of the British people and the soldiers who fought in the war. One of her most famous songs was 'We'll Meet Again'. You can watch it and read the words here:
We thought that this song was particularly relevant during these difficult times when many of us are separated from friends and family during the Lockdown. So this week, we would like you to consider who you are most looking forward to "meeting again" when we return to something resembling normal. Why not post about it on our class blog?
Muslims all over the world are celebrating Ramadan and we would like to say 'Ramadan Mubarak' to all the children and families who are doing that. We would like you to watch the video at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/localnews/2654993-Bradford/0 (scroll down to the post from 24 April 2020) which is about Yahya who built his own mosque to help celebrate Ramadan under the current lockdown conditions. There is also a document below that you might want to look at to learn a bit more about the importance of Ramadan to Muslims.
We know that this is a difficult time for a lot of people but, in the spirit of Ramadan, we would like you to consider the things - however small - that you are grateful for at this difficult time. Why not share those things with us on our class blog?
