The statement to live by for this week is
I try to follow our school and classroom rules.
A long time before Jesus was born God’s people spent a long time in the desert. They were led by a man called Moses who was very close to God. Moses was worried that God’s people didn’t always live good lives and sometimes they turned away from God. One day Moses and God’s people, the Israelites camped near a mountain called Mount Sinai. Moses climbed the mountain and prayed that God would teach them rules or laws that would bind them together – unite them – as a people. When Moses returned to the people he told them the rules God had given him.
These are the rules God gave the People to help them to live together in love and peace.
I am the Lord your God.
Love, serve and praise me.
Keep my name holy.
Keep my day holy.
