Theme 2 - Jesus
Transcript of Theme 2 - Jesus
This theme is about the life of Jesus and how it is the basis for Christian Faith.

The prayer service happens as follows
Opening song (Gathering Song)
Reading of the Gospel
Discussion about Jesus and Friendship
Saying the Our Father
This service gives the children an opportunity to reflect on everything they have learned about Jesus and friends of Jesus.
It gives the teacher the opportunity to assess and see what the children have learned.

Ideas for prayer space were plentiful
"Our mission as Christians is to conform ourselves evermore to Jesus as the model of our lives." Pope Francis

Drama, art and ICT can also be incorporated into this lesson
Children will learn prayers and songs from the Grow in Live soundtrack which they will have to memorise.
Use of ICT:
The Grow in Love website has many excellent resources such as slideshows, videos, posters, etc.
Talk and discussion:
This will allow the teacher to hear any prior knowledge the children have on a topic while also hearing about different people's experiences.
Drama- Still Image
After hearing a story, the children could act out different scenes in groups and freeze at a certain point to create a still image. This puts an emphasis on the characters' feelings as the children will have to consider their facial expressions.

Discussion based on poster
Prayer: Our Father
Three interactive activities
Song: When Jesus Was a Boy
Drama role play as Jesus' friends
Children's workbook activity
Conversation about what children now know about Jesus
This method is useful as a story recall strategy. The teacher could have a ball that is thrown to different students asking them questions about the story to test their memory and attention during the reading of the story.
