Week beginning 3rd September 2019
Term 1 Christian Value – Friendship
This term we will be thinking about how we can demonstrate Friendship to each other using the Bible Story of Zacchaeus as a brilliant example. The story of Zacchaeus tells us about the taxman who wasn’t very kind to people but Jesus shared God’s love with him anyway. Because Jesus showed him love Zacchaeus then changed his behaviour and repaid everyone he had been unkind to. We are hoping the children will see that even if people aren’t always kind to them, by showing them friendship and love hopefully we can help to change other people’s behaviour towards others. Love your neighbour as yourself. Luke 10:27
Week beginning 9th September 2019
This week we have been thinking about how we can show friendship to others even if they are always kind to us. This is a really hard concept for the children so we shared examples people who have been unkind but when people continuously show them kindness eventually they may change their own behaviour. We also started learning about Harvest songs and thought more about the story of Zacchaeus.
