Year 6 have been looking at ‘Gospels’ in RE and what we can learn from them. This week, we studied the story of ‘The Wise and Foolish Builders’, where the wise builder built his house on the rock and the foolish builder, built his house on the sand. We thought about how important it is to build these strong foundations in out lives. Year 6 had a great discussion on the importance of building foundations in our lives; these can be in the form of making stable and trusting relationships, joining extra curricular clubs or even caring for others around you.
To demonstrate how important strong foundations are, Year 6 had a challenge. They each got given different materials and they had to balance the most bibles on. Each group succeeded in this task and found that firm and solid foundations were extremely important!
