The Miracles of Jesus!

This week our RE focus has been on Christianity and the Miracles of Jesus.  We looked at some of the traditional miracles like calming the sea and healing the sick and then looked at what made these miracles.  We then looked at the events surrounding the Hudson River plane accident and whether this was a form of modern miracle.  It was fascinating listening to the children’s take on this – their thoughts on miracles and what sort of events they would class as a miracle.

Another element to all faiths is the tradition of pilgrimage and we looked at the Christian pilgrimage to Lourdes, France to the shrine to Saint Bernadette.  It was again really interesting hearing about journeys the children class as special to them and why faiths have pilgrimages.
