Christian Value Leaflets
At Steyning CofE Primary School we have taken on board a new resource called ‘Understanding Christianity’. It is being used to support the children in developing their understanding of Christianity and the connections between the world and their own experiences within it. It will enable the children to understand about Christianity by exploring core concepts (God, Creation, Fall, People of God, Incarnation, Gospel, Salvation and Kingdom of God).
The teaching and learning enables the children to read a variety of Bible texts and how Christians understand the above concepts. The children learn through a 'big' question that is presented to them within each concept and they explore the answers to this through discussion, art work and reading the Bible extracts. Each year the children will build on previous learning and be taught through three elements. This will enable the children to make sense of the text, understand the impact of belief in these concepts in the lives of Christians and the Christian community and to make connections with other learning and their own responses.
