Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Christians believe that Jesus’ life and teachings are inspiring. Paul, one of Jesus’ disciples (followers), remembered some very famous teachings by Jesus which can be read in the Bible (Galatians 5:22): 


“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” 


To live safely and happily, and to help others, Jesus encourages Christians to ‘grow’ these fruits or qualities in their lives. Read RE Lesson Plan 2 to find out more.
