Foundation Subjects and Science
This term is full of exciting new challenges and experiences.
In the first half of the summer term, we are following the Understanding Christianity Unit on Incarnation and God, asking the Big Question “What is the Trinity?” We will be looking at Baptism of Jesus and the symbolism of Baptism today, how the Trinity is represented and the meaning of the Grace.
We will then be following the Emmanuel Project Unit on Judaism, considering the question “What symbols and stories help Jewish people remember their covenant with God?”
In Heartsmart our focus is “Fake is a mistake”. The children will be thinking about accepting that the real me is the best me, identifying what is unique about them and understanding what shame is.
