Autumn 1 - Truthfulness


The Christian Value we will be focusing on this half term is Truthfulness. Christians believe that truth is revealed in the Bible and supremely in the person and life of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus’ teaching we are given an insight into the nature of God and the way in which He means us to live.


Bible Stories linked to Truthfulness

· The Burning Bush (Exodus 2-4)

· The Two Builders (Matthew 7, Luke 6)

· A Hard Question (Luke 20)

· The Night Visitor (John 3)

Truthfulness in school

In Year 4 we looked at the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den and discussed what the children would have done in that situation and why. We also looked at a story and talked about whether it is ever ok to lie.


In Year 5 we discussed some key questions about truthfulness and spoke about whether it is important to always tell the truth and also discussed how it makes us feel when someone is untruthful to us. This helped us to understand the importance of being truthful.
