Answer the questions on this sheet: 



Religious Education

Who do you know who’s inspirational? 

Parables (a story with a hidden meaning) and miracles are stories in the Bible that help Christians to live their life. 

Christian’s believe Jesus to be a inspiration because he made miracles happen – we know this from some of the Christian parables that we have read during our RE Story Times this week.

What does it mean to be an inspiration / to inspire people?

[Discuss with an adult why the people above can be described as inspirational.]

Activity: Who has inspired you during Lockdown?

Draw a picture of a person that has inspired you and write a caption to explain why.



Story Time (Linked to Religious Education)

Adults – please remind your children that this is a story believed by Christians and that it is okay to have different beliefs.


Enjoy your activities,

Miss Simons, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Billingham : )
