September 2019

 

Our class prayer area reflects that we are in Ordinary time in the Liturgical Year. It is a very special place in our classroom and reminds us that Jesus is at the heart of everything that we do.

Father in heaven You love us...You are with us night and day.

Mission Accepted!

 

In our Religious Education lesson, at the start of our new school year, we reflected on our school mission,

 

'Christ is the centre of our school community

where we live, love and learn together.'

 

We thought of so many ways our class family can live, love and learn together and displayed them on our 'Mission Tree' display.

Our work is displayed in our class prayer area and is a lovely reminder of how we can follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

Year 3 Class Saint

 

St. John Vianney

The Cure d’Ars (the Parish Priest of Ars in France)

 

Our class Saint was the parish priest of Ayrs in France and we learned so much about him when we listened to his story. We decided he had many qualities which will inspire us this year. 

St. John Vianney...

  • loved God with his whole heart and had a strong faith,
  • made the right choices,
  • was obedient,
  • was generous and compassionate and helped people, especially the poor, 
  • persevered when his work was difficult,
  • followed the Gospel messages, 
  • was a good role model to other people,
  • always worked hard,
  • cared for sick people, 
  • was brave in new situations,
  • was never afraid to talk about his faith and as a little boy, was brave enough to receive the Sacraments in secret, even though he risked punishment from the French soldiers if caught.

 

What an incredible person he was!

 

 

We worked in groups to write a prayer to God asking him to help us be inspired by St. John Vianney's life.

Why is St. John Vianney our class Saint?

Because he dedicated his life to teaching people about God, just as we are learning about God in our preparation for First Holy Communion.
He helped people receive God’s  forgiveness through confessions, just as we will in our First Confession.

 

St. John Vianney is the Patron Saint of priests.

His feast day is the 4th August.

 

 

 

Our Jesuit Virtues this half term are 'Grateful and Generous.' Our ideas for how we show these virtues are on our 'Virtues Tree'. I wonder who will win certificates for demonstrating them this half term?

Beginning our work on 

' Belonging - We gather as God's family'

 

Team work was definitely dream work when we worked in groups to decide on what responsibilities and qualities were necessary in our school family. 

 

We need to be mature, forgiving, truthful, helpful, perserve, grateful and generous and so much more! Too many responsibilities to list!

Would you be a fisher of men?

 

In our Religious Education lesson we read the story of the 'Call of the Disciples' and sorted reasons for and against the disciples answering Jesus's call. Beech class have yet to decide what they would have done so watch this space for an update! They have decided however, that they are definitely Jesus's disciples TODAY!
