Design the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games mascot with new lesson plans available now! 

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games has developed some exciting new learning resources to inspire school children in Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 to design their own mascot, which could go on to become the official icon of the Games.   

The curriculum-aligned lesson plans – available to download now from www.birmingham2022.com/mascot - cover the history of the Commonwealth Games, the role of mascots in major sporting events and the values of Birmingham 2022.  

The resources encourage children to get creative and become “Mascot Makers” by designing a mascot for the Games that is youthful, diverse, dynamic and creative: everything that the region stands for.  

Designs can then be entered into a national competition to win amazing prizes including tickets to the Birmingham 2022 Opening Ceremony. The best entries will inspire the Games’ official mascot.  

There are tailored lesson plans for Key Stage 1/2 and Key Stage 3, and are suitable for classroom learning or home schooling, and with teacher or parent support.  

The resources are available now; the competition to design the Birmingham 2022 official mascot closes on 5th August 2020.  

Go to www.birmingham2022.com/mascot to download the resources and find out how to enter the competition, including terms and conditions.

RE

The Story of the People of God

 

See The Bible (PPT)

These are scripture readings for you to answer questions on PPT.

 

Mark 4:35-41 35That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." 36Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?" 39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" 41They were terrified and asked each other, "Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!"

 

Luke 23:34 34Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

 

 

John 20:24-31 24Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the LORD!" But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe." 26A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!" 27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe." 28Thomas said to him, "My LORD and my God!" 29Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." 30Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

 

Revelation 21:4 4'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

 

 

Luke 12:22-31 22Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? 27"Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. 28If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you-you of little faith! 29And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
