In  RE, Year 4 have to thinking about the meaning of self – control. We talked about times in our life when we needed self – control eg on the football pitch and not being tempted to eat the wrong foods. We practised meditating and how it made us feel, looking at words to describe quiet times. Finally we had to reflect when a Buddhist would need  use self – control eg ‘The 5 precepts’ from last week’s learning such as:

  • not drinking alcohol
  • not eating meat
  • meditating – freeing the mind of bad thoughts
  • not being greedy but sharing our wealth
  • Always telling the truth
