Values & Virtues: Eloquent and Truthful
We are growing to be eloquent and truthful in what we say of ourselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Year 3 Class Saint
St Theresa of Calcutta
Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun and missionary. She is famous for her charitable works and helping the poor, hungry and sick people of India. She founded the Missionaries of Charity, who ran over 500 missions worldwide. She was canonised as a Saint by the Catholic church in 2016. We celebrate her Saint day on 5th September
"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love." Mother Theresa
BUILDING THE KINGDOM
We are very proud to be a part of the Building the Kingdom programme, the aim of which is to embed distinctive Catholic Curriculum design for the transformation of society. As said on their website, ‘through the National School of Formation, a dynamic and challenging approach to teaching and learning in a Catholic School has been developed. This initiative calls for the contextualising of all learning within the beliefs and values of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition, aspiring to reach the highest possible levels of learning. We call it Building the Kingdom…’
Through Building the Kingdom, we explore the big questions of purpose and meaning that arise throughout the Liturgical year, and then create lessons and events which engage students with the skills needed to be agents for a Spirit fuelled transformation of society.
You will find this terms plan for Building the Kingdom at the bottom of the page.
Through our curriculum work this term we will be focusing on:
Common good means we follow Jesus’ example of ensuring that quieter voices are heard, so that a better world is achieved together and where each and every one of us, including our mother earth, may flourish. Ultimately, no one can truly flourish if another person is hungry, lost or abandoned, nor can humankind flourish while our common home is degraded and exploited for the good of the few.
RE: This half term we will be studying the units 'Christmas' and 'We listen to God's Word at Mass'
The story of the shepherds provides a focus for us to reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ and who he is in our first unit.
Our second unit involves thinking about listening and finding out about the Liturgy of the Word at Mass. Through this topic we will explore the value and the importance of listening to the Word of God in the Scriptures.
This terms topic:
Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats. Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor. Find exciting recipes to read – and write your own, too. Then get busy in the kitchen, making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you grow fit and strong. Be a whizz and create your own scrumdiddlyumptious smoothie for Squeezy Joe and his team of fruity friends. And here’s food for thought – if you are what you eat, what does that make you?
This term we are focusing on working scientifically. We will be thinking about what makes a test fair, what we will need to change and what we will be keeping the same as well as predicting outcomes. We will plan, carry out and evaluate our own investigations linked to our topic.
