"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love."
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:
Stewardship is all about caring for the many gifts that God has given to us. These include our environment, our own talents and other resources.
All living things are connected so we must use God's gifts responsibly to meet the needs of everyone, now and in the future.
RE: This half term we will be studying the units 'Lent' and 'Holy week'
Lent: The children will appreciate that during Lent Christians resolve to change and try to become more like Christ. They will also be introduced to new Gospel stories about Jesus bringing change into the lives of people he encountered.
Holy Week: The unit is designed to help deepen the children’s knowledge of some of the events of Holy Week and to deepen their understanding of the foundation of the Church’s celebration of the Mass
In Year 3 we focus on the following prayers. Please help your child to pray these at home.
This terms topic:
It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. Find out who’s coming to visit. Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey. Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the food chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark. What incredible species can you imagine? Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.
ANIMALS INCLUDING HUMANS
This unit ‘Animals including humans’ takes children through six lessons where they learn how to: identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food; they get nutrition from what they eat. They also learn how to identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement
