Year 1 Homework 5th October

Jesus tells us not to worry

This week we have 4 mini activities to do together.

1. A Gospel story for you to read together as a family

2. A question to talk about.

3. A nature walk to go on together

4..A short prayer to write.

1.Read this story together:-   One day two brothers came to Jesus to ask him to sort out a problem about sharing out some money. Jesus explained to them that there were more important things in life than being rich. It is more important to be loving and kind.

’ Jesus pointed to some birds and explained, ‘Look at the birds they don’t store things up. God feeds them, and you are worth more than birds. Look at the wild flowers, they are not rich, but even a king does not look as beautiful as a flower, God makes them beautiful. He cares much more about you. So don’t be worried, trust in God.

 (based on Luke 12: 24-30 and Matthew 6: 24- 30)

2. A question to talk about.   What things do you worry about which are not really important? (hint: who is going to be first in the queue, get the best car seat or the biggest cake etc.)

3. A nature walk:- Take the children for a walk outside, noticing everything that God takes care of, remembering what the scripture tells us.

4. Write a prayer in your book :-help the children to write a prayer thanking God for taking care of all the things they have noticed and especially themselves and their family.
