The Way, the Truth and the Life

 This term our topic will be

                             New Life                              

Children will begin to understand that because Jesus rose from the dead we can experience Easter. We will read and act out the story of Jesus appearing to Mary Magdalene when he rose from the dead and begin to understand why this story is important. We will celebrate the special gift of joy and peace that Jesus gave to the disciples and can also give to us. We will listen to and act out the story of Jesus going back to his Father in heaven.
