Visit from Thorpe Bay and Shoeburyness Baptist Church

Well, what an afternoon Year 5 had on Tuesday!

We welcomed David Mayne, from Thorpe Bay and Shoeburyness Baptist Church to discuss what faith means. The children have spent some time already this half term discussing what faith means to them and explored some of the reasons why people belong to religions. As a class, both 5BW and 5A devised a range of very thoughtful questions about faith ranging from: ‘Why do people believe in God?’ to ‘How do people keep their faith when things go wrong?’

David was very impressed with how deeply the children investigated this topic and he led some thought-provoking discussion as a year group. He was able to offer some answers to questions that were directly posed personally to him and also questions about creation, God and other faiths. We are looking forward to how we are going to use the feedback of our discussion in future weeks in class.

Mrs. Axelson, Mrs. Witt and the Year 5 team were super impressed with how all of the children in Year 5 were respectful of the beliefs and views of others.
