Homework 28.06.19

Next week is the start of July. Lots of schools and people around the world are taking part in plastic free July. This is where we will all try to use as little single use plastic as possible. For your homework you have a choice you could : 
 

  • Create a poster about the dangers of using single use plastics and encouraging people to find more sustainable options 
  • write about what you are going to do you might take photos of some of the things you do instead of using single use plastic ( for example a reusable water bottle and lunch box rather than single use sandwich bags) 
  • write a persuasive letter to a supermarket to ask them to give more plastic free options 
  • write a letter to the government about plastic free July and the importance of it 

 

Some plastic free ideas you could write about are: 

Using a reusable bottle rather than single use ones 

Using a lunchbox and tub rather than single use sandwich bags

Buying loose fruit and veg rather than in a packet 

Using a shampoo bar rather than plastic bottle 

Using bag for life when shopping rather than buying new ones 

Recycling as much as possible

sinned against you,

and by the help of your grace

I will not sin again.

Amen

 

Confession

The priest will greet you and together you will say the sign of the cross.

Then you will say 'Bless me Father for I have sinned, this is my first confession, these are my sins' You will then confess your sins.

 

Now you will tell God through the priest that you are sorry for your sins. You say: 'For these and all my other sins which i cannot remember I am very sorry.'

 

The Priest will then ask you to say a prayer or do some good things to show that you are sorry.

We are children of the Living God

We are children who know God’s love.

And we are beautiful in God’s sight.

  1. We heard the voice of Jesus say:

“I Love you I forgive.”

And when we listened carefully,

We learned how we should live.

               Chorus

  1. We heard the voice of Jesus say:

“Don’t run away I’m here.

And when your heart is feeling sad

Just know that I am here.”

              Chorus

  1. We heard the voice of Jesus say:

“I live inside your heart,

And in the heart of earth and starts,

So we will never be apart.”

 

 

Praise to you O Christ, our Saviour,

Praise to you O Christ, our Saviour,

Word of the Father, calling us to life:

Son of God who leads us to freedom

Glory to you lord Jesus Christ!

 

You are the word who calls us out of darkness:

You are the word that leads us into light

You are the word that brings us through the desert:

Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ

 

Praise to you O Christ, our Saviour,

Word of the Father, calling us to life:

Son of God who leads us to freedom

Glory to you lord Jesus Christ!

 

 

Freely, Freely. 

 

God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name,
I’ve been born again in Jesus’ name;
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share His love as He told me to.

He said: ‘Freely, freely, you have received,
Freely, freely give;
Go in My name, and because you believe
Others will know that I live.’

All power is given in Jesus’ name,

In earth and heaven in Jesus’ name;
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share His power as He told me to. 

He said: ‘Freely, freely, you have received,
Freely, freely give;
Go in My name, and because you believe
Others will know that I live.’
