Number of the day 6


Watch Miss Levy’s Maths video on Teams. You can find it in the ‘Remote Learning’ channel under Files. For today’s task, you will need a pencil and the Maths template sheet provided in the resources below. If you do not have a printer, you can copy it on to a piece of paper. 



Look at the images (see resource sheet 1) with your child. Ask them: What do you know about Jesus? Use the pictures to help. Why do you think Christians might think he is special? What did we learn about Jesus last term? (Christmas story)


In the pictures we have just looked at, there is a picture of Jesus as an adult. Let’s look at some other pictures of Jesus growing up (see resource sheet 2). Read aloud the captions at the bottom of the sheet and encourage your child to point to the matching picture.  How have we grown up? What can you do now that you couldn’t do when you were a baby? Watch video ‘Jesus growing up’:


Explain to your child that Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God and he is very special. God gave Jesus a special job to do on Earth- share God’s good news. Jesus chose some ordinary people to help him do God’s work on Earth. These 12 men were called disciples, which meant they were followers of Jesus.
