Miracles from Heaven

One of our wonderful Year 11 students who has almost finished her time at Thomas Knyvett College has emailed to let us know there’s a great film to revise Religious Studies Unit 1 Section 1 ‘Believing in God’ called Miracles from Heaven.  Apparently it shows evil and suffering, miracles as well as unanswered prayers. Could this be a good revision film to watch for Year 10 students before Thursday?

On IMDb it says: MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN is based on the incredible true story of the Beam family. When Christy (Jennifer Garner) discovers her 10-year-old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter’s healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident, an extraordinary miracle unfolds in the wake of her dramatic rescue that leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired.

Revising for the Year 7 Summer RE Exam

In class throughout the year we’ve practised different revision methods each time we’ve done an assessment. Perhaps you can use some of them again over the next month to revise for the summer exam? You might create a huge mind map on A3 paper for the whole year using the Positively Mad Mind Mapping skills we learnt when discovering how we can see the world from our window. Below are some things to read and things to watch, to help you review your learning. Why not revise with a friend, so you can talk about things you see and hear. Afterwards you can test each other to check you’ve what you’ve learnt.

On YouTube there is a Beginner’s Bible which is a quick and easy way to revise some of the main stories we’ve learnt this year. For example The Easter Story, The Story of Moses, Jesus and his miracles, and the Nativity.

On Newsround there are numerous good articles and clips about religion which will help with the exam. For example a report on young people finding religion important today, the only Buddhist primary school in Britain, Scouts not wanting to making a promise to God, and a woman winning a Christian cross battle.

Generally the BBC is a good place to look for clear informative articles which can help you understand school work better as well as short video clips to strengthen your knowledge. There is a super page about what you’ll find inside a Mosque, and in the Key Stage 2 Video Clips pages you can search for some easy explanations of things we’ve studied. Meanwhile their Key Stage 3 video clips pages have numerous clips on Buddhism, as well as more on Christianity.
