Our religion lesson for this week was also related to our topic work. We emphasized the importance of showing our love to our family. The children watched the story:
Guess how much I love You by Sam McBratney.
We discussed that there are people who although don’t form part of our family still have a very big heart and are ready to help other people in need. A classic example is St. Mother Theresa and St. Martin.
Two boys acted out the story of when St. Martin saved a poor man from dying by tearing his cloak in half to protect him from the cold weather.
We ended the lesson by creating a craft of St. Martin with a two coloured cloak representing the splitting of the cloak in half to save the poor man’s life.
