R.E. – peer pressure and Christianity

5F used their drama and PSHE skills and linked it to R.E. this afternoon. We returned to a story the children knew well – Noah’s Ark – and investigated how Noah would have felt if he had faced peer pressure when he built the ark. Sometimes it is mistakenly thought others mocked him but this isn’t found in the bible. The children completed hot seating to consider the roles of Noah and others who may have been making the wrong choice. We also discussed different interpretations of the bible and whether it would have been possible to get 10 billion animals on the ark – not to mention whether they would have all got on. This helped to encourage some interesting discussion.
