Religious Education Curriculum Directory
This half term, the children in the Nursery and the Reception classes will be learning about God’s Family. Throughout the topic, the children will be given opportunities to become aware that God made all the people in the world to be part of his family and that we are part of it too.
They will learn that God made us to know and love him, as well as to show our love for him by helping one another. They will find out that God has given us gifts so that we can show his love to others.
As Christmas approaches, they will learn that God’s greatest gift to us was to send his only son Jesus and learn how to respond to that gift.
You could help your children by:
• reminding them that Christmas is about the gift of Jesus to us and not just about receiving presents.
• talk about your family and draw pictures of Jesus being part of your family
• take them to see baby Jesus at church during the Christmas season.
