EYFS Module One: Created and Loved by God
This module explores the individual. Rooted in the teaching that we are created by God out of love and for love, it helps children to develop an understanding of the importance of valuing themselves as the basis for personal relationships:
Unit 1 – Religious Understanding - introduces children to the story of creation, where God created the earth, sea, stars, plants, animals and humans. The five-story sessions encourage children to creatively explore this topic and help them to deeply know that they are created by God out of love and for love.
Unit 2 – Me, My Body, My Health - children meet the story book characters of Freddy Teddy, Mollie the Cat and Billy Bird who will reappear throughout this scheme of work. Children will learn about their uniqueness in real terms, including celebrating differences and individual gifts, talents and abilities. They will learn about looking after and using their God-given bodies and develop their vocabulary around this topic.
Unit 3 – Emotional Well-Being - children will learn about likes, dislikes and self-acceptance. They will learn from Freddy Teddy and his friends how to describe different feelings, both good and bad. Finally through a real world example, children will learn that actions have consequences; that when we make mistakes we should say sorry and ask for forgiveness.
Unit 4 – Life Cycles - through Mollie the Cat and Billy Bird talking about their respective journeys from kitten/egg to adult animals, children will explore the natural human cycle of life, focusing on what children can remember about their development so far and what they know will happen as they get older. This is underpinned by the religious understanding that growing up is part of God’s plan for our lives and that we are loved by Him at every life stage.
