The great gospel show down: Matthew Vs. Luke
Within our RE lesson this week, we have read the two nativity stories as told by Matthew and Luke. After comparing and contrasting these two texts, we were able to unpick our own perceptions of the nativity. A group conducted a mathematical analysis from children across the school asking: 'When Jesus was born, who was there?' Where others considered the meaning of shepherds being chosen by God and the angels to be the first to visit the new born Messiah and what it meant when wise men from afar also visited Jesus. All were then given the opportunity to create a nativiy piece of art work; each person justified their representation and explained wht message they were portraying in their artwork.
