RE – Christian stories.

This week in religious education we listened to a story from the Christian faith.  It was a story about two builders, one who built his house on rocks and the other who built his house on sand.   Jesus told this story as a way of explaining what it means to follow God .  We found out that;

‘The wise man is the man who builds his house on rocks because his house won’t fall down as the rocks give a strong base  and …

the foolish man is the man who builds his house on sand because the sand is soft and will come crashing down’

We tried to demonstrate this using a cone as the house, we created ‘rain’ with some water and looked what happened, the sand began to make the house sink but the house on the rocks didn’t move.

When asked why this happened:

Leo said that “the sand is soft” and Bella told us that it was because “rocks are stronger than sand”, we all decided that the ‘rain’ would eventually wash the sand away.

Where we would build our house?  We all agreed that we would build our houses on the rocks.  We then talked about  our ‘class rules’ and decided that these were the ‘rock’ of our classroom.
