Over the next four weeks in school we would normally be talking about Friends. The focus of this topic is what Jesus taught us about how to be a good friend.
This week in RE we are starting to think about Jesus and his friends. This is a good opportunity to talk to your children about who Jesus' friends were, can they remember the word 'disciple' from the Easter story?
You can read the story below with your child, look at the picture and talk about what they can see happening in the picture and answer the questions about the story.
You can use these questions to guide the discussions with your child and possibly open up more conversations about their friends.
Activities you might like to try
Children could draw a picture of on of their friends, maybe get them to tell you what it is that they like the most about their friend "they are kind, they make me laugh" and maybe some of the things that they are looking forward to doing with their friend when they see them again.
We are really aware that the children are really missing their friends at the moment, this could be an opportunity to talk about ways of keeping in touch with their friends. If they want to write a letter,a card or a picture to give to their friend you could do this. We have tried to think of ways of getting these pictures to their friends, you can take a photo of whatever they have made, post it on tapestry and we can forward it to their friend on tapestry. If you want you could put it in the post, it would be a lovely gift for their friend to receive, showing that they are being though of. If you don't have their friends address, you can send it to school and we can forward it to them from there.
