Year Group reminders

S+P+A+C+E for me (Show and Tell) – Red Group

This week Red Group are invited to bring in a small item linked to our learning.

RE

Good News – Respond

We will be sharing Luke’s story of Pentecost:

After Jesus had gone back to his Father in heaven, his friends were sad.  They missed him.  They felt lonely and afraid without him.  On Pentecost day, they were all together in the house.  They began to feel different.  Joy and happiness filled their hearts.  It was wonderful.  They knew that Jesus had kept his promise to send a new friend, the Holy Spirit.

Based on Acts 2: 1-4.

We will be remembering, celebrating and responding to our understanding that everyone has Good News and that Pentecost is the celebration of the Good News of Jesus.
