The Good News
“Jesus is sent to preach good news to the poor. Jesus identifies himself with the poor of every kind and makes active love toward them the condition for entering his kingdom.”
Catechism of the Catholic Church
The children will learn that Jesus brought the good news of God’s love and that this changed people’s lives. They will learn that Jesus used his power to help others and reflect on the importance of these events.
They will reflect on how they can bring good news to their family and friends.
At home you could help your children by:
• highlighting opportunities when they can give thanks to God
• read stories about Jesus helping people, e.g. The feeding of the 5000
• visit www.tere.org/interactive_site/KS1link.htm and complete activities.
