Our Values

This half term we will be teaching and modelling the Christian value of 'Creativity'.

Seen from a Christian perspective all of life is a gift. With this gift comes a mutual responsibility to ensure the creation is not spoiled, but rather sustained and shared by all.

 

People who believe in God often talk about him as the Creator. They believe that God made human beings in his own image which means that each of us is also creative. 3000 years ago people wrote poems and songs to God praising him for the wonders of the universe. Some of these are in the Bible. They are called Psalms. In Psalm 148 the writer imagines the whole of creation praising the Lord God.

 

 

 

Creativity can be found wherever you look both inside and out. In order to really appreciate creation and be creative ourselves, we rely upon our senses. Go on a family walk in the countryside or park. What can you hear, see, smell and touch? Make a simple map of your walk and collect things from the ground (little sticks, stones, feathers, crispy leaves etc.) to fix on to your map to help you remember what you have experienced with your senses at different places on the journey.

How are you creative? How can you show your Creativity? How can you appreciate other's Creativity?----------------------------------------
