Year 4: FOLLOWING GOD / THE TRINITY
The children in Year 4 will be undertaking two units of work based around the Christian faith. They will start by looking at the story of Noah, examining the challenges of following God and considering the concepts of covenant and promise within Christianity. They will move on to learning about the complex concept of The Holy Trinity, including how Christians express their beliefs through traditions such as baptism.
Year 5: GOD / JESUS
Year 5 will start the term by studying Christian beliefs about the nature and character of God. They will learn how these beliefs impact many aspects of life for Christians including how they live and worship. During Autumn 2, they will be learning about the concept of the Kingdom of God as a place where Christians strive to bring love, forgiveness and inclusion into the world. They will consider both the joy and the responsibilities for Christians of being part of God's Kingdom.
Year 6: PEOPLE OF GOD / THE MESSIAH
In Year 6, our children will have the opportunity to learn from the story of Moses and the Exodus, considering whether following God can bring freedom and justice for Christians. As we approach Christmas, they will start to consider the evidence Christians give for their claim that Jesus was the promised Messiah, leading to the opportunity to reflect on their own viewpoints.
