Revise these key terms and remember a noun is a word used to identify any of a class of people, places, or things.
An adjective is a word describing a noun, for example a ‘Rose’ is red, or beautiful.

These are the 7 terms you must define accurately, note if you define the term Alien as a foreigner this will be a wrong answer.
Use my examples. Remember these key terms are specific to Religious Education and must be defined in the context of religion.

God – (noun) the one perfect, eternal, supernatural supreme being
Alien – (noun) heavenly being, supernatural being
Supreme – (adjective) highest
Being – (noun) life form
Supernatural – (adjective) paranormal
Omnipotent – (adjective) all powerful
Omniscient – (adjective) all knowing or all seeing

Read all of my comments then, write a thoughtful review. Use a green pen. Show an improvement if I have asked you to.
If I wrote ‘sp’ this means you must spell the word correctly. Rewrite the word to show your learning.
I may have asked you to complete the sentence or give more examples.
Reflecting on your class work and homework is our evidence that you are learning.

Read Appendix E and discuss the various perspectives on faith with your peers. Write your own personal definition as a half page or full page essay.
