It's time to start our new R.E. topic, "Called", which is all about belonging.
Our lives are marked by many different experiences of being welcomed into new situations and groups.
We recognise the importance of being welcomed, of feeling comfortable with new situations and belonging to new groups. We belong to families, classes, clubs and other social groupings.
Discuss the following at home and record your thoughts on an eye-catching poster (on paper or in PowerPoint):
1. Recall a time when you were chosen or asked to do something. Share your opinions about what happened Why were you chosen? How did you feel?
2. Recall a time when you had expected, or hoped to be chosen for a particular team, role or task, but were not chosen. How did you feel?
3. Looking ahead, what would you most like to be chosen for and why?
Email your poster to the y4y5 class email address or bring it into school.
