Year 6 Class Saint
Saint Maximilian Kolbe
Saint Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish Priest during the Second World War and was strongly influenced by his vision of Mary. When World War Two began, he was one of the only Franciscans to stay in the monastery and he opened up a hospital for those who had been injured. He also provided shelter for refugees. He was later arrested and sent to Auschwitz. After two months at the concentration camp, many men were sent to starve to death. Kolbe was not one of them, yet decided to trade places with one of the young man who still had a family at home. After two weeks Kolbe was still alive and was killed by injection. During his suffering he remained calm and prayed daily for the men suffering along side him.
Feast Day: 14th August
Followers of Christ
The children will be given the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of the followers of Christ, looking at why disciples chose to follow Christ and the sacrifices of some Saints. They will also consider the difficulties of being a follower of Christ today.
t They will also develop their understanding of Advent and be given opportunities to explore how we prepare for the coming of Christ. They will explore the theme of Advent throughout different parables and hymns.

Known as ‘the war to end all wars’ the First World War was a conflict that had a devastating effect on millions of people across the world. What started this global tragedy? What was life like for families on the home front as they waited for news of loved ones who were ‘missing in action’? How did the soldiers endure the terrible conditions in the trenches? How was a fragile peace finally achieved? We will always remember the fallen.
