This week we have started a new unit in Religion. Our topic is called ‘Stories of God’s People’. We have been listening to some of our favourite books and reading stories from the Bible.
Part of this unit requires students to bring in a favourite book from home to read with the class and discuss the characters in the story. If you have a favourite book at home, you can bring it in on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday for us to use in our Religion sessions. Make sure it has your name on it somewhere.
This unit also has a big focus on storytelling. We would like the students to have a discussion with their families at home and get someone to tell them a story about their family – perhaps some family history, maybe a story about mum or dad when they were little or any other story about your family. Feel free to add these stories to the blog as a comment on this post so we can all read your story and discuss them throughout our unit.
We hope you enjoy this unit and the opportunities it provides to share in the wonderful pleasure of storytelling.
