7 RE lesson plans with differentiation (accompanying resources not included) Christianity Focus - Based around the salvation of Jesus Great topic to teach during the lead up to Easter Objectives covered: I can outline the Easter Story. I can give reasons for Jesus' death. I can explain how Christians celebrate the Eucharist. I understand the impact of sacrifice in my own life. I can explore Bible texts.

These resources aim to support Christian schools (I designed this for a Catholic School) to guide their children in creating and leading meaningful collective worship or prayer and liturgy within their classrooms or year groups. The model uses the GATHER, LISTEN, RESPOND, GO FORTH format. It is colour-coded, memorable and extremely easy to follow. You will need to cut and laminate the smaller picture resources to allow children to manipulate them and decide on how they can best deliver their collective worship by adding them to the larger colour coded sheet (best printed and laminated on A3) Also included is an informative support booklet for the children when it is their turn to lead. It guides them to decide on a theme and how to consider what to do in each aspect of the service. There are some helpful pages how to select Scripture, with verses included, depending on their theme, rather than starting with nothing. I know many teachers in Christian schools have found this to be a really useful resource for their class and I hope your class enjoy using it.

To know the Easter story and how it links with the ideas of salvation. (What is the Easter story? ) What instructions does Jesus give on how to behave? Think, talk and ask questions about whether the story of Easter has anything to say to them about sadness, hope or heaven, exploring different ideas. (What emotions are shown through the Easter story? ) How do Christians show their beliefs about the Easter story? Give at least three examples of how Christians show their beliefs about Jesus’ death and resurrection in church worship at Easter.
