This half term we are thinking about Differences.
We will be considering how we are all different to one another yet all so equally important in the eyes of God. We will celebrate our differences and think about how we all have a vital role to play within our community. We will reflect on our own individual gifts and characteristics and think about how important it is to value these and be true to ourselves.
We will listen to stories from the bible which illustrate how Jesus demonstrated his love for all people despite their differences. We will learn about how he taught his disciples not to discriminate against others, and look at how this often happens within our society today.
Parents can support children with this theme by talking to them about how we are each of us unique and all have a range of gifts and talents which make us who we are. Parents may like to discuss with their children how, if we avoid stereotyping and discrimination against others, we can help to spread peace within the community.
