Units: ‘Stories of God’s People’ and ‘Experiencing God through Prayer’
In our first unit, students will develop an understanding that the Bible is a collection of different stories about God and God’s people. They will explore stories from the Old Testament about God’s people and their relationship with God.
In the second unit, students will learn that prayer is a special time when people feel close to God. It is an opportunity for giving thanks and talking to God about our needs. People can feel close to God in different ways, in different places and at different times.
Throughout the term, relevant biblical stories will be used to enhance their understandings.
We are currently learning about the season of Lent. We know that Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and is the season leading up to Easter. We attended a liturgy on Ash Wednesday and received a cross of ashes on our foreheads.
