Year 5 Faith Conference (2018)
Year 5 children attended a ‘Gifted and Talented’ R.E conference with several other Luton schools recently. The key message was Respect for All. Children explored differences of opinion concerning personal choices as well as religion and how, although we are all diverse we can still live harmoniously when we show the utmost respect for others.
Activities throughout the day included detailing our personal opinions then sharing and comparing them with others and listening to different points of view to see if a different viewpoint could be examined objectively.
The Children were asked to read out scenarios of real news events and decide whether respect had been shown for groups or individuals involved.
The children were invited to create their own artwork, to display their understanding of what respect means to them and where possible create hidden messages as shown in models of famous artworks including that of, the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.
