Religious Education and Curriculum News

From our Year 2 Classes:

This term we learnt that Jesus began a special family, the ‘family of God’, called the Church. We learnt that people become members of God’s family, the Church when they are baptised. The Church is God’s special family made up of many different people who come together to follow the teachings of Jesus. God invites every person to belong to this family.
