Content of the Barnabas RE Day

We explore the ways people shut themselves off from each other and the way Jesus invites us instead to reach out to everyone around us, regardless of prejudices. We look at his example and his stories, which help us understand what compassion means. We think about the feeling of compassion and its power to help us act and change our behaviour. We explore how we might show compassion in our own behaviour in school and at home.

At KS1 a key focus is on Jesus changing people’s lives.

At KS2 ideas include being powerless and vulnerable, sharing other people’s experience in order to help them, the idea that people matter, and self-sacrifice for others. Key focuses include stories illustrating how Jesus helped people.
