The story encourages us to think about what a good friend really is. Write a letter to a friend telling them why you consider them as a friend. You may want to include the qualities they have, for example, they are a good listener, they do things for you without expecting anything in return. Perhaps you can think of an occasion when you needed a friend and they helped you.

If you have them or can get out to buy some, glue mustard seeds, or any other seeds you may have in the cupboard if you need to improvise, on some paper or card to make a bookmark. Write the scripture verse Matthew 13:31 on it "1 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field."
Colour and decorate your bookmark and cover it with clear sticky backed paper if you can.
God’s word is like a tiny seed planted. His Word is "planted" in our hearts and minds and grows when you think and understand and learn about Him. You can "plant" more seeds when you share His Love with others.
Copy the following link into your browser and watch the clip on YouTube. It is the story of the parable of the Lost Sheep
Create a newspaper report. Remind yourself of the features we used when we wrote about 'Flood'; direct speech, reported speech, the 5 w's, picture, caption, columns. Write about the events that led up to, during and after the sheep went missing. What did the shepherd say about it? Did the local officials set about looking for the sheep? What was the reaction when the sheep was found at last?
You can create this as one sheet or a tabloid newspaper style.
On our school website, read the statement about the Lost Sheep to remind yourself about how the parable is so important to us as a school.
