The Chosen People

In RE we are learning that we are chosen by God and learn that God chose certain people to
lead and guide his people. We will learn that God called Abraham and that God chose Moses to be a great leader. We will also learn about how Samuel responded to God’s call and find out about the story of Daniel in the lions’ den.

We will have an opportunity to reflect on Abraham’s trust in God and learn that we should always trust God.
We will learn that God chooses unexpected people and will be given the opportunity to reflect on their own response to God's call.

To support talk through the story below.

Our topic for this half term is .....

As historians we will be looking at changes within living memory, and significant people, places and events in the Brighouse and the locality.

As geographers  we will look at and make maps.  We will also look at aerial images

As artists we will investigate famous local artists:  We will draw, paint or collage views from the local area. 

As musicians we will continue to work on rhythm and pulse listening to the Brighouse and Rastrick Band with The Floral Dance.


Year 2 had a great time investigating the local area as part of our theme.

Our class charity is the local RSPCA animal centre in Halifax.  We are collecting coins in class and will be organising different class events during the year.

We had a lovely visit from Lauren from the RSPCA in Halifax.  She told us all about the important work the centre does for animals in the local area.
