Year 5 English work from Mrs Taylor
This week our RE learning is based on an excellent resource recommended to us by our education colleagues at Chester Diocese. The Diocese of Canterbury produced this PowerPoint for children and families to use as a home worship resource. Look at the PowerPoint presentation, then tell your family what you have learned.
We are going to focus on the message on slide 5.
Challenge 1: Read the Bible passage from James chapter 2 on the slide. Take some time to reflect on this passage. Answer the three questions on the slide.
Challenge 2: Complete challenge 1. When we treat a person or group better than another, we call this “partiality”. Can you think of an example of partiality that you have seen in the world today, or in recent history? (It might help you if you think about the learning we have doing recently about the Civil Rights Movement.)
Challenge 3: Listen to Mark Yule speaking about this Bible reference and partiality on this link:

Imagine you were the receptionist in the story about the man who wanted to donate to the church. What would you have done? Would you have stuck to your principles about using polite language and being respectful, or would you have agreed to “get the big fat pig right now”? Remember, the donation might have been used to do a lot of good for others. Explain your reasoning and give other examples of conflicting demands on our principles and values.
