The Bible

 

In this topic children will have the opportunity to know that the Bible is a story of God’s

relationship with his people. We will reflect on how the Bible can help us. The children will explore how God called Abraham and we will think about the challenges and blessings Abraham received. We will have knowledge of God's call to Joseph and God's plan for him. We will be learning more about Moses, David and Jonah too!

 

Last Week: We thought about the story of Jonah and how he felt throughout the story using drama to retell and discuss. 

 

This week: We will be learning about Joseph and how God called him. We will think about the good and bad times in Joseph's life and our own.
