Year One – God’s Great Plan.
The children will learn about the beauty of God’s world and explore and respond to the wonders of creation e.g. the seasons. They will also hear about the story of Creation from Genesis and talk about its meaning. They will be reflecting on the knowledge that God made us because he loves us and develop their understanding that we show God we love him by looking after the world and each other. They will learn that we can spoil God’s creation and that we have a responsibility to look after it, as well as hearing an appropriate part of the story of Noah and the Flood and its message of salvation and hope.
Year Two – The Chosen People.
The children will learn that we are chosen by God and learn that God chose certain people to lead and guide his people. They will learn that God called Abraham and that God chose Moses to be a great leader. They will also learn about how Samuel responded to God’s call and find out about the story of Daniel in the lions’ den. They will have an opportunity to reflect on Abraham’s trust in God and learn that we should always trust God.
They will learn that God chooses unexpected people and will be given the opportunity to reflect on their own response to God’s call.
