This unit is designed to support pupils in year 3 who may be making their first Holy Communion and begin to understand the parts of the Mass. Pupils are invited to explore how Sacred Scripture proclaims ways in which we are saved. It explores the response of Samuel to God’s plan and considers what we can learn from it.
Opportunities are provided for pupils to know what the Liturgy of the Word is and what our response should be, as well as broadening their knowledge of what is contained in the Bible.
It introduces work on the Presentation and the Baptism of Jesus to enable pupils to begin to explore how people recognised God’s revelation of Himself in Jesus.
The multi-faith element explores what happens at the Gurdwara – the Sikh place of worship. We will be having a whole school Sikhism learning week later in the month, during which Daya will, once again, visit us and share her depth of knowledge.
