Read the parable of 'The Parable Son'. The bible teaches us that God is always willing to forgive when we say sorry. Discuss the importance of both saying sorry and being able to forgive others. Think of times when it is right to be honest and say sorry.
Hook: Read the letter from a T-Rex.
Explain that this week we will be going on a imaginary journey around the UK. Explain that Birmingham, where we live, is a city in the UK and show this on a map of the British Isles. Look at google maps and expand outwards from our school (or your home) as far as you can to show where we live. Tell the children that to go on a journey like this we will need a passport. Complete the Passport with all of the relevant information.
Watch the Youtube clips and share the information in 'The United Kingdom' PowerPoint.
Learn the song about the United Kingdom and colour the flags.
End of week activity:
Write a letter back to the T-Rex telling him all that you have learned about where you live.
