Look who came to visit Year 5....
It was Tim Lock.
Last term we welcomed back an old face who returned to Grange Park to give Year 5 a talk on Christian beliefs. Tim Lock, who is now a local pastor spoke to us about Christian values and how his church supports the local community. Prior to his visit, we developed questions to ask that linked back to our Enquiry Question which was, How are Christian beliefs linked to interaction and involvement with the community?
Here are some examples of our questions:
“What do you do to help others?”
“Do you offer support to other religions?”
“What story in the bible best summarises the importance of helping the community?”
“Can you tell us the impact helping has had on the community?”
Tim spoke to us about how his church welcomes all religions as most Christians believe that God created everyone as equal. Later, we discussed how we could give back to the community and express acts of kindness.
Here’s what we came up with:
- Give money to charity
- Recycle clothes to charity shops
- Harvest Festival donations to homeless shelter
- Visit the elderly
- Smile at others!
