Today we will be continuing to learn about inspirational people who have lived out the beatitudes. On Monday we learnt about the extraordinary life of Edith Stein (1891-1942) who lived during World War 2. You learnt about Edith Stein and why she is an example of someone who lived out the beatitude, 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.' 

LO. To Know why Jesus blessed the pure in heart and reflect on the presence of God within you.


You have today's RE lesson time to continue with the activities set on Monday. I have given you time today to finish this as I would like you to write your answers in as much detail as possible.

When you come to write up your prayer, I would like you to present this beautifully and to send me a copy for the RE class page! We will be able to share our prayers with each other when we are back in class together soon (not to much longer to wait!) I have given you examples to help you! 


If you would like a further challenge, then look at the silver or gold activity and have a go at that! Those of you who are already completing the gold activity, if you would like a challenge please email me and I will send you your challenge! 

Blessed are the Pure of Heart
