This half term our learning question is :
What type of world did Jesus want?
OUTCOMES BY THE END OF THIS UNIT, PUPILS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ABLE TO:
- Identify this as part of a ‘Gospel’, which tells the story of the life and teaching of Jesus.
- Make clear links between the calling of the first disciples and how Christians today try to follow Jesus and be ‘fishers of people’.
- Offer suggestions about what Jesus’ actions towards the leper might mean for a Christian.
- Make simple links between Bible texts and the concept of ‘Gospel’ (good news).
- Give examples of how Christians try to show love to all, including how members of the clergy follow Jesus’ teaching.
- Make links between the Bible stories studied and the importance of love, and life in the world today, expressing some ideas of their own clearly

• Christians try to be like Jesus — they want to know him better and better.
• Christians try to put his teaching and example into practice in lots of ways, from church worship to social justice.
