The Story of Moses
This week in RE we learnt about the story of Moses. We now know that this story can be found in the Torah and in the Bible in Exodus, and that Moses is very important to the Jewish people, who call him a prophet. Can we remember this word at home?
Look below to see the story of Moses as told by Year 2.
It started with Moses being placed in a basket, and his mother putting the basket in the river to keep him safe.
Next the Pharaoh ordered all Jewish people to be slaves. After speaking to God, Moses went to speak to him about this and told him to stop treating the Jewish people badly. The Pharaoh was furious so Moses fled for his life.
God was very angry at how the Pharaoh and the Egyptians so sent ten plagues, including a plague of frogs and locusts.
The final plague was the angel of death. The Jewish people protected themselves by painting their doors with lamb's blood.
Finally, the Jewish people managed to escape to Israel by Moses parting the Red Sea (which isn't actually red). Once they were through the sea came down onto the Egyptians.
