Values & Virtues:
Attentive & Discerning
Attentive: We are attentive when we listen to our calling from God to love and serve one another in all that we do. We are attentive to our experiences and can see where they will take us in our future vocations.
Discerning: We are discerning when we decide to do the right thing in the interest of the needs of others because we know the positive impact that will have on their lives.
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.
We will be studying the creation story and creating our own art based on the story. We will also be looking at the Canticles of creation written by Saint Francis of Assisi and writing our own.
Miracles and the Sacrament of the Sick
We will be exploring the miracles of Jesus, learning about different places of Pilgrimage and The order of the Sacrament of the Sick.
Arachnids, insects, molluscs and myriapods. Minibeasts come in all shapes and sizes! This half term, we’ll handle a range of minibeasts and small creatures. Taking photographs, making notes and listening carefully to expert explanations will help us to understand how minibeasts move, what they eat and where they live. Using what we’ve learned, we’ll write an interesting minibeast report. We’ll make detailed drawings of our minibeasts, present data about them and make maps to show the route of our minibeast hunt.
In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. We will describe the life cycles of of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird. We will also describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals.
OUR CLASS SAINT: ST. MARTIN DE PORRES
We will also find out about the life of our Class Saint, St. Martin de Porres.
