In RE, we will reflect on what it means to be a part of a family, and think about the different families we belong to. We will understand what it means to belong to our Church family. We will think about all the people who belong to God’s family and know that he is our Father in heaven. We will hear about Jesus’ first visit to the Temple and think about why this was such a special occasion. We will be able to describe some of the celebrations that are held in Church.
