Jesus Strand-Hehu Karaiti

Jesus Strand



These are derived from investigation of the theological focus, the strand progressions over 8 years and what we believe are the key ideas our year 8 leavers will need to know and understand by the time they leave St Joseph's. Our selection of the key ideas is guided by our understanding of the Nicene Creed, the founding belief statement of the Catholic faith dating back to the Council of Nicea in AD325; Biblical teaching; Church tradition; and the Catechism of the Catholic church which the original RE curriculum documents are based on.

Key Ideas

1. Jesus was human (as well as God)
2. Jesus came to show us how to live and to save us.
3. Jesus is God (as well as human)

Links for what life was like in the time of Jesus







OUR TEST FOR THE JESUS STRAND

WHOLE SCHOOL ASSESSMENT FOR UNDERSTANDING JESUS

Aim is to show understanding of the big ideas across the school appropriate to the age e.g. a younger child might draw the Good Samaritan and an older child might refer to the Beatitudes or Social Justice.  Both would count as equal answers – the older child has more knowledge but both have shown understanding.  Some of our older children have very little knowledge on which to base their understanding and this test aims to reveal this.  Younger children will need a writer to record (all of these ideas are also covered during the liturgical year and children will be exposed to them).  Teachers can also use an overall judgement for younger children based on what you have discussed/done in class.

1. Jesus is fully human (covered in year 1 & 5)

2. Jesus came to show us how to live and to save us (covered years, 2 (showed love), 4 (by example), 6 (repent and live a good life), 7 (our Saviour), 8 (Beatitudes))
