David and the Psalms

Throughout this unit the children will develop and understanding of who David is and what inspired him to write Psalms. They will learn where and how to find the Psalms within the Bible. They will read and analyse the meaning of the Psalms and the teaching and messages from the Psalms that we live by and take comfort for.

 

Prior to the end of the unit the children, whilst listening to harp music,will write their own Psalms. It is hoped to have these published and displayed within the classroom. Some will also be placed on the website.

Today the children have compared different Psalms and discussed the images that may support certain elements of each Psalm. They have used their investigative skills to research different artists and then create an image fit for the purpose of the particular chosen Psalm. The children then evaluated what they had researched and compiled. 

These are the images created based on the research of artists and Psalm.
