The question for our first R.E. topic will be 'What do Christians believe God is like?'. By the end of the unit the class will be able to identify what a parable is and tell and simplified version of 'The Lost Son' from the bible. The story will help to recognise that God is a forgiving Father. Year 1 will be able to give at least two examples of a way in which Christians show their belief in God as loving and forgiving; for example, by saying sorry; by seeing God as welcoming them back; by forgiving others. They will also be able to give an example of how Christians put their beliefs into practice in worship.
