Why is the word 'God'so important to Christians?

 

For Christians the word ‘God’ is important as the name of someone very important: the Creator of the universe and all that is in it, including people and animals. It is important to draw inferences from the Creation Story as to what God is like.

 

Why would God make Jellyfish?

 

LO - Create jellyfish with collage material, playdough or jelly. Discuss results. Was it easy to create a jellyfish? Was it alive when you had finished? Why not? Explore the idea that Christians believe God is the giver of life, giving life even to jellyfish.

Being Special - Muslim

 

Today the children investigated how Muslims welcome babies into the world. Saffiyya came to JC1 to tell the children how her Muslim family welcomed their baby brother into the world. Muslims believe that babies are a gift from Allah (God). As soon as the baby was born he was washed and the special words "Allahu Akbar" were whispered into the baby's ear, meaning "God is greatest". Muslims want the name of Allah to be the first word that their new baby hears, because Allah is very important.

 

The children passed the baby around and whispered words into the baby's ear words that they thought were important for a newly born.

 

After, a drop of honey is placed on the lips of the baby. This is to show that the person hopes their baby will be sweet-natured and kind.
