During this half term, our R.E. theme is ‘Getting to know Jesus’.
With memories of Christmas still fairly fresh, the children will be learning that Jesus has a great love for each one of us and will be encouraged to think of ways in which we can show our love for him.
At home you can help your child by:
Reminding your child that the gifts received at Christmas are a sign of your love. By saying thank you for those gifts we are also showing love.
Sharing Bible stories with them. If you do not already have a children’s Bible you might like to think about buying one of the many beautifully illustrated versions that are available.
Focusing on the stories of Jesus caring for and curing people who are ill.
Viewing mass on the parish website , if possible visiting the church when it is quiet and lighting a candle and saying a prayer.
Encouraging your child to make a card for a relative friend or neighbour who is ill as a way of showing their love and care.
Sharing bedtime prayers with your child and remembering family and friends who are ill.
