Week 2: We have often read the story of The Good Samaritan in school. If you have a book of Bible stories at home, read it again with an adult, or watch one of the stories for children on You Tube (ask an adult).
This time we will be thinking more deeply about why the Good Samaritan acted as he did and what we can learn from the story about how we should live our lives.
Watch the You Tube clip:

This clip doesn't have any talking in it, so it really makes you think about how the characters are feeling and why they chose their actions.
