RE – The Creation Story

Thursday 28 September 2023

This half term, we are reading, learning and thinking about The Creation Story  (This is a YouTube link. Top tip for watching YouTube with your child: go to the settings cog along the play bar and turn off autoplay – this avoids an inappropriate clip coming up automatically, and helps to discourage your child from passively watching clip after clip). 

In our lessons so far, we have ordered the Creation Story and thought about the following questions:

We’ve also looked at two pieces of art by artists who used The Creation Story as inspiration. Thinking about the following questions together:

‘Breisheit’ (In The Beginning) by Jackie Olenick 

‘Premordial chaos’ by Judy Racz

“It’s all the days of the story in one painting. I can see the sea, the sky and the land”

“I like how the colours are nice and bright”

“I can see the different days from the story in each picture”

We then created our own piece of art.

Help at home – Ask your child to retell The Creation Story to you. What do they think the story tells us about God?
