In Kindergarten this term, we have three focus areas in Religious Education. We first looked at the “Church” and discovered that not only is it a building we go to to celebrate Mass, but it is also the name we give to God’s people. As members of God’s family, we should strive to live more like Jesus and treat others with kindness and fairness. We read the story of Jesus visiting the temple in Jerusalem where people were treating it like a marketplace and discussed why this made Jesus so upset.
This week, the Kindergarten students will be looking into the differences between living and non-living things. They will be looking through magazines for things that have been made by man and things that were created by God.
Finally, the last focus for the year will be Christmas. The Kindergarten students will be participating in many Christmas activities and, at the same time, will be discovering the true meaning of Christmas and its traditions.
