Curriculum Overview for Year 4



Our RE for this half term is 

Trust in God

We will learn about Jesus’ teaching and the importance of trusting in him. They will learn that it is not always easy to trust in God (e.g. Zechariah).

 We will learn about the promise God made to Mary through the angel Gabriel and learn how Joseph put his trust in God when the angel appeared to him. We will be come familiar with Mary’s song of praise and trust in God (the Magnificat) and learn that God fulfilled his promise to Mary when Jesus, the Son of God, was born.

We will have a chance to deepen their awareness of God’s love for us and know that he asks us to trust in him. We will reflect on the times it is difficult to trust and on the importance of keeping promises. We will make their own Advent promises. We will reflect on how Mary and Joseph placed all their trust in God and experience a celebration of the Nativity.
