This week we had the opportunity to meet in House Teams for the first time this year. We listened to stories about our house saints and spoke about how we can follow in their footsteps throughout the school year.
As a class we then decided we will care for others, be kind to one another and make sure that we say thank you to God every day.
Preparation for Mass
In Year 3, we have been given new prayers to learn and different responses we need to know when in mass. Collectively, we spoke about why Year 3 is such an important year for our faith and how we can prepare ourselves throughout the year for the sacraments we will make.
Tuesday morning we were very excited to go to mass with the whole school. It was a special mass celebrating exaltation of the cross.
Our newly elected Liturgy Leads led us in saying The Angelus at midday on Friday. We will say The Angelus every Friday before our lunch in Year 3 to remind ourselves of the Incarnation and pay homage to Mary; and how she helps us live our lives like God would want us too.
Beech class have been learning about how the eyes of the world will be on the UK in November due to the COP26 conference. We learnt about what we can do to help with Climate Change and remembered how Pope Francis has asked us to look after our common home; the world.
We devised our Class Charter. We spoke about our rights and responsibilities in Year 3 and how by following our class charter we can keep ourselves and others safe at school. If you are ever in Beech class, please have a look at what we have promised to do.
Saint John Vianney
We learnt this week about our class saint, Saint John Vianney. Saint John Vianney was born in France in 1786 and is the patron saint of Priests. Our liturgy leads led a prayer service outside where we asked Saint John Vianney to protect, guide and encourage us throughout the school year.
Did you know Saint John Vianney made his first holy communion in secret?
