Bl5 Class Assembly - In November we Remember
This week in Bl5 we shared our class assembly about Remembrance Month.
We shared that the month of November is a time in which the Catholic community remembers and prays for those who have died. We shared that it is a time when we are conscious of those in our parishes who are grieving and all those families who have lost loved ones in the past year.
Throughout this month in November we have made a special effort to remember in our prayers those who have joined God our Father in heaven. Please see the images below of our assembly.
Across the school, each class have selected their Class Chaplains. Our Class Chaplains role is to enhance and promote the Catholic life of the school. Below are some photos of them putting their faith into action and leading year 5 in daily worship. Class Chaplains also support and lead the daily Prayers using ten ten, as well leading spontaneous morning or afternoon prayer and also our daily examen.
In year 5, during this topic we have been learning that we are all made in the image and likeness of God. We have been getting to know ourselves and to appreciate that our value and uniqueness is central to our wellbeing.
The keep vocabulary we have been learning throughout this topic is;
Qualities, talents, unique, gifts, challenge, joys, happiness responsibility, dignity, image and peacemaker.
Throughout this topic we have been listening to and engaging with a variety of Scripture to help us understand and make links with how we are made in the image and likeness of God.
From Paul’s letter to the Colossians (based on Colossians 3:10-11)
You are created by God to be like God.
You are God’s people, his saints. He loves you. You are all different.
You come from different places, speak in different ways, have different customs.
But the important thing is that you are God’s children.
So love one another, help one another, be at peace with one another.
And let the love of Jesus fill your hearts and minds.
We used this scripture to reflect on and answer the below questions;
- What qualities does Paul list?
- Which is the most important of all?
- How would they help us to be a peacemaker?
- Which of those qualities do you admire most and why?
- When are people not at peace with one another and why do you think this happens?
- Can you think of someone you know who is a peacemaker, what do they do?
- How could you be a peacemaker?
