R.E.

Learning Intention:

We are now looking towards Advent and this week, we begin our new topic – Expectations :

Wednesday 1st December

Learning Intention:

To be able to identify sources of religious belief linked to Advent as a time of joyful expectation of Christmas

Read The Angelus:

Reveal 3 – The Angelus

Reflect on these questions: 

  • What were the expectations placed upon Mary?
  • How did Mary respond to these expectations? Q  What events take place within the Angelus?
  • Find and discuss words/phrases that are unfamiliar to the children.
  • Discuss the meaning and significance of these.
  • Why is the Hail Mary repeated throughout? What is it reminding us of?

Use responses to these questions as a guide to writing  a poem about Mary. In your poem outline Mary’s feelings of anticipation and expectation at becoming the Mother of Christ and what this means to us as Christians.

Remember to use the poetry skills learnt in English.
