Take the bible and find a story or piece of scripture to read. It might be a favourite piece of scripture from the bible or a new part. You can read along with your family or quietly alone.



Pentecost – Serving- Good News


Week Commencing-Monday 4th May

Recognise the Pentecost story as a religious story. AT1 (i)


This week I would like children to continue exploring the story of Pentecost. Share the story with your child again either using the PowerPoint provided or a children’s bible you already have at home. Talk to children about what happens when in the story. Some examples of questions you could ask them are:


Where did Jesus go when it was time to leave his friends?

How did the friends of Jesus feel after he went back to his Father?

What did Jesus send that would help his friends tell people about God?

Which elements arrived with the Holy Spirit?

What happened on Pentecost day?


I would like children to retell the story in their home learning books. Please print and cut out the pictures provided and stick them into home learning books in the correct order. If you are unable to print simply view the pictures on screen and talk about their order before writing about them. I would like children to write about each picture, recording anything from a label to a simple sentence for each. As always, encourage your child to write as much as they can.



Please view the reading of 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers below and download or view the literacy planning and relevant documents.
