During autumn 2 we will be studying Incarnation and our key question will be 'Why does Christmas matter to Christians?'. 


By the end of the unit, pupils will be able to:

  • Give a clear, simple account of the story of Jesus’ birth and why Jesus is important for Christians.
  • Recognise that stories of Jesus’ life come from the Gospels.
  • Give examples of ways in which Christians use the story of the nativity to guide their beliefs and actions at Christmas.
  • Decide what they personally have to be thankful for at Christmas time.


By the end of the unit, pupils will be know that:

  • Christians believe that Jesus is God and that he was born as a baby in Bethlehem.
  • The Bible points out that his birth showed that he was extraordinary (for example, he is worshipped as a king, in Matthew) and that he came to bring good news (for example, to the poor, in Luke).
  • Christians celebrate Jesus’ birth; Advent for Christians is a time of getting ready for Jesus’ coming.
