Year 7 Re Homework

some thought he might like to use:
1. If God is all seeing, all powerful etc then his full nature can never be revealed to humans, let alone in a book, as we are finite and limited by our senses, and by time.
2. But God wants to communicate to humans so he reveals himself in ways that we will understand. In other words he gives us glimpses of who his is.

father son and holy spirit are the obvious ones, Genesis 1 shows Spirit hovering over waters, in old testament Spirit comes on people and they prophecy and then in book of Acts Spirit it given to people so spirit has always been around, but more and more of him shown.

Different aspects of God are shown in different ways at different times - God destroys nations, God speaks in still small voice to Elijah, God protects us like a mother hen protecting chicks under her wings (psalms) Gods wonder passes in front of Moses and Moses glows, God does miracles scary and healing (walls of jericho, then healing of blind man for example) God sacrifices his son for us.
So all through the Bible differetn aspects of God are being revealed so that overall we should have a fuller picture.

Religious Education at Broughton follows the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for RE – Searching for Meaning. The aim of this syllabus is to support students’ personal search for meaning by engaging enquiry into the question ‘What is it to be human?’- exploring answers offered by religion and belief.’  Studying RE helps develops a knowledge and understanding of the beliefs and values which have shaped and continue to have an important influence on the world that we live in. It provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, beliefs about God, the self and the nature of reality, issues of right and wrong, and what it means to be human.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Religious Education

Teaching and learning in RE at Broughton aims to develop curiosity, investigative and questioning skills and an enquiring mind. By exploring issues within and across faiths, students learn to understand different religions, beliefs, values and traditions, and their influence on individuals, communities and cultures.  Our aim is to encourage students to think for themselves and make informed decisions about their own beliefs, values and ideals. Classroom-based learning in RE is a supplemented by visits and external speakers, giving students the opportunity to encounter real-life examples of what they learn in the classroom.


Homework is set on a weekly basis or as extended project work which provides opportunities for further research.
