RE The Way The Truth & The Life

Autumn 2


Year 1 – Mary, the Mother of God

The children will learn that God sent the Angel Gabriel with a message

to Mary and learn why this is important. They will learn that God asked

Mary to be the mother of his son and will have an opportunity to reflect

on her response.


They will hear about Mary’s visit to her cousin, Elizabeth and reflect on the good news. They will begin to reflect on how we can prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus and learn that Mary is our mother in heaven and that she is looking after us.
