Religious Education  

Our Christian value this half term is: Trust

Our topic this half-term is: I am special


The aim of this unit is to:

Give pupils an understanding that they are unique and special.

To know they are loved, valued and made by God.

Christian Values

This unit does not clearly enrich any one particular Christian value. It stresses instead how much God loves and values us and the value of self-worth.


During this topic we will be talking about God as Heavenly Father and that He makes each one of us different and special, He knows us and loves us.  There will be opportunities for children to explore all about themselves, their likes, dislikes, physical features, abilities and how they are similar but different to each other. We will also be talking about emotions and the experiences related to them.




We will also be learning about Harvest to give pupils an understanding of why we say thank you to God at harvest time and talk about him being creator. We will talk about why it is important to help others (food donations) and discuss our favourite foods.


Christian Values covered in this unit are;
