Our RE for this half term is ...
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.
