We held our first whole class collective worship today; it was a beautiful service of welcome and new beginnings.
Service of Blessing and Commitment
Today, we had our first assembly in class. We listened to the Word of God and prayed for our school during this year ahead. We made a commitment today to do our best and try our hardest to use the gifts and talent God has given us, especially when times get tough.
Exaltation of the Cross
On Monday, our assembly was on the ‘Feast of Exaltation of the Holy Cross’. This is a special day when we remember the sacrifice Jesus made dying on the cross to save us. Afterwards, we designed a cross in our Prayer Journals to show how thankful we are for the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross.
We would like to introduce you to our new Liturgy Leaders. They carried out their first task today: monitoring our Prayer Table.
Year Five’s ‘Pinky Promises’
We have been considering where we can use our gifts and talents in the service of other people. Each of us wrote a promise to use our gifts/talents to help someone and placed it in our ‘pinky-promise’ basket in our prayer corner.
The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo
We recreated a section of the famous painting on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam: Adam’s hand reaching to touch the mighty right hand of our Lord. We used the grid method to ensure our drawings were precise. Then, we used flesh tones to add colour; we focused on highlighting the areas where the light touches the hands and using a darker shadow to deepen the darkest areas making sure that the whole illustration was blended perfectly.
