Values and virtues: Grateful and Generous
Pupils are growing to be grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Schools help their pupils grow by encouraging them to know and be grateful for all their gifts, developing them to the full so that they can be generous in the service of others.
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.
Through our curriculum work this term we will be focusing on:
CST-Dignity of the human person
God made each one of us. This makes us incredibly special. It doesn’t matter who we are, who our friends are, what we own, or what we look like. What matters is that we are special because we are God’s children. This means that we must treat others with respect and fairness because God made us all.
British Value: Individual Liberty
Individual liberty means each of us having the freedom to make our own choices and do what we want – within reason. As long as we respect the other three British values and the rights of others, then we are free to pursue our ambitions, and follow our own will.
Creation The story of Abraham to Joseph
Most children will know the stories of creation, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and
Joseph from the Old Testament. They will understand from the story of creation
that human beings are made in God’s image and likeness and that this needs to
be valued and respected in other people. They will be able to identify how God
called and protected both Abraham and Isaac.
Jesus teaches us how to pray
Most children will know that Jesus prayed to the Father and they will be able to
identify some of the prayers that he learnt growing up in the Jewish faith. They
will be able to explain why it is important to call and to pray to God the Father.
They will know some of the traditional prayers of the Church including the prayer
of the Rosary.
I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare. Invade and attack. Romans versus Celts, the fight is on. Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar and find out what the Romans did for us. Get ready for Gladiator School and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus, brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum. When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?
Learners will look at sound vibrations and how sounds travel through different mediums. Children will then think about the sounds they hear which are pleasant and unpleasant, as well as being safe with sound by understanding how to insulate sounds. During the unit, learners will get the chance to design and build their own sound-making devices and to test materials that are good at insulating sounds.
Iliona never imagined that her sea voyage from Greece to Egypt would lead to Rome, but when she is captured by pirates and auctioned off as a slave, that's where she lands. Readers are invited to view the wonders of Rome through Iliona's eyes--the luxury, the excess, and the politics.
