In Religious Education the Prep/One’s have been investigating the story of Noah’s Ark. For the Learning Expo the students created an image of Noah’s Ark. Students sequenced the story and wrote a recount to explain the important message from this story.
Max - I made the connection that God made a promise not to flood the earth.
Mikayla - I make promises and so does God in this story.
Leo – I like the rainbow, it’s important to see what God was promising.
Chloe – I think that it is important that we try to forgive others if we make a mistake.
As a way to reflect on their understanding of the story students developed and documented some questions.
Nelson - I wonder why the animals could live together peacefully.
Lucy – I wonder why God chose to flood the earth. My mum forgives me when I do something so everyone should try to forgive each other.
Patrick - I wonder why the people made poor decisions.
During the first week of term 3, students investigated the questions about Noah’s Ark and began to tune in to the ‘Creation Story’. They made many connections about the two stories and represented their thinking using a Venn Diagram.
