During Autumn 1 we will be studying 'God' and our key question will be 'What do Christians believe God is like?'.
By the end of the unit, pupils will be able to:
- Identify what a parable is.
- Tell the story of the Lost Son from the Bible simply, and recognise a link with the concept of God as a forgiving Father.
- Give clear, simple accounts of what the story means to Christians.
- 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.
- Give an example of how Christians put their beliefs into practice in worship; by saying sorry to God, for example.
- Think, talk and ask questions about whether they can learn anything from the story for themselves, exploring different ideas.
By the end of the unit, pupils will know that:
- Christians believe in God, and that they find out about God in the Bible.
- Christians believe God is loving, kind, fair and forgiving, and also Lord and King.
- Some stories show these Christian beliefs.
- Christians worship God and try to live in ways that please him.
