L.O To understand the need to be accountable
Ask the children to think of things they find difficult to own up to. What experiences do we have when we try to hide or cover things up.
Share a Power point of the story of Jonah and the whale. After reading the story discuss the following:
What had Jonah done wrong? Why was he running away?
What happened to the weather?
Why couldn’t Jonah ask God to help?
Who saved him? What did Jonah say to God?
How did Jonah get out?
What happened to the people of Nineveh? How did Jonah react?
Conclude that everyone makes mistakes its best not to run away but to sort things out.
Activity (all groups)
