RE

Last week we explored who Jesus' friends are and we discovered that Jesus loved children and always welcomed them.  We discovered that everyone was Jesus' friend even if some people were cross at Jesus for being friends with some people who they thought as being outcasts.

 

Before we begin I would like you to get a bag and place some objects in.  If you have a scarf ask your parent to cover your eyes, or simply close your eyes.  Can you guess what the objects are using your sense of touch.  It be can quite difficult to work out what some of the things are.  

 

Click here to watch one of the stories of Jesus

Everyday people walked passed and ignored Bartimaeus. On that day, Jesus took notice. Jesus saw him, listened and helped. Why do you think he stopped and helped?

 

I wonder how Bartimaeus felt when Jesus spoke to him?

Today I want you to write a letter to Jesus from Bartimaeus.  What would he say?  

 

Dear Jesus................

 

 

Don't forget to try and do some reading.  Can you find any stories which someone is helped?  What did they need and who helped them?

This term we are going to explore Jesus, a friend to everyone.

 

So I would like you to think !

Who did Jesus make friends with?

Create a list of all the people the children can remember.

 

Jesus made friends with everyone.

He made time to speak to everyone, especially those who were considered by others, as not worthy of being spoken to by anyone.

There are many stories in the Bible that remind us of Jesus’ love for people of all ages and from any social background.

Today we are going to explore the story from Mark's Gospel, Jesus and the Children.

Click here

 

Jesus loved the children and was cross with the disciples for not recognising the importance and the gift a child is.

Today I would like you to produce a piece of artwork showing God's love for children.

Have a look at some ideas below.
