For most of your children, schooling is happening online so we thought it would be helpful to start putting some SRI content online as well. This way, you as parents of students who have given consent for your children to participate in SRI, can access SRI content. Choose the content, based on the school level of your child/children : Lower Primary - Foundation to Year 3, Upper Primary - Year 4-Year 6. We would love to hear your feedback on this material. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . By hearing your feedback, we will know that this is worthwhile and so will continue to provide additional materials.

This week, why not think about what is really important. The coronavirus has helped all of us think about this question.
Lower Primary Students
Where do you go to find out things? Do you use books? The internet? Your parents? We can discover many things by going outside and looking carefully. Christians go to the Bible to find out about God. Watch the SRI sessions here and here. Why not complete the worksheets, I Can See and The Bible after you have watched these?
Time to reflect
We know that many people are feeling anxious at the moment. What is making you feel anxious?
For Christians, they don't need to be afraid of what is happening at the moment, or at any time, because they know that God is with them and knows what is happening to them. They need to be sensible, they need to be careful, but they don't need to be scared.
Upper Primary Students
Do you have a Bible at home that you can look at? Many people now read the Bible on their phone through a Bible App.
The Bible is the sacred text for Christians, so it is important that in Christian SRI we spend time thinking about the Bible.
Watch Session 1 about the Bible here.
