St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Dear Parents and Carers, I hope you are all staying safe. Thank you for a great start to the new school year! The children have been as wonderful as we knew they would be! It is really important that you keep socially distancing on the school grounds but also when you are out and about. The last thing we want is to have to close a bubble for 14 days so let’s keep the virus at bay! We are looking forward to each day with our children! Keep smiling! Mrs Hodges

Our RE for this half term is ...

Chosen People

We will learn 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.
