Faith concepts

Seasons, Generosity, Beliefs, Values, Rituals, Practices, Justice.

Seeking understanding

What does it mean to be generous?

How can I live generously during Lent?

What influences my beliefs and values about being generous?


Throughout his ministry the gospels tell us that Jesus Christ lived a generous life.

During Lent and Holy Week Christians participate in practices that live out and celebrate God’s generosity.

Being generous contributes to the building of fair and just relationships.

People’s beliefs and values influence how they practise generosity.

  1. Hi Mrs Michompson,
    I agree with Cherry. My family were tired though. They were a bit grumpy. I like the new homework because I’m pretty tired of writing so many reflections.
    p.s. There is a mistake in step 2 where it says ‘What traditions and beliefs did you family bring with them.’ It is supposed to be your.

  2. Dear Mrs. M and Mrs. T,
    I love the change in homework, it is a creative way to learn, much better than reflecting each night! I really like the homework task itself, I love listening to my parent’s stories about migration!

  3. Wow the video was great. The black back round brings out the drawing in white. I hope we can watch the video again for prayer cause it’s lent. Really loved the clip and how we had to do the line drawing. See you in class Mrs M and Mrs T.

  4. hello, your blog is AWESOME and the stuff on it to I hope I have a fun year in year 5 and hope you have fun with the class!
