Year 4 RE Inspire Workshop

27 November 2012

"The Royal line of David is like a tree that has been cut down, but just as new branches sprout from a stump, so a new King will arise from among David's descendants."
Isaiah 11.1.

Year 4 have enjoyed creating Jesse Trees in our RE Inspire Workshop.

In class we have learnt the stories of Jesus' ancestors and how a Jesse tree represents the lineage of Jesus. We based our design idea on icons and have created 3D Jesse Trees. For each of Jesus' ancestors we created a symbol to go on the Jesse tree.

We enjoyed learning the story of King David. We identified similarities between David's Kingship and that of Jesus: David was a poor shepherd boy who was anointed as King in the town of Bethlehem; Jesus was born in Bethlehem to a poor family and as Christ the King he became our shepherd.

We have really enjoyed sharing our RE work with our parents and families. They really enjoyed working with us too.
