Year 3 are using different ways to pray and develop a closer relationship with God. Here we are using the Mission Together prayer for the realisation of Global Goals.
In our Sacramental topic on Baptism, we have been learning about the importance of the naming part of the service. We wrote our own Litany of Saints that could be read at a Baptism.
We enjoyed finding out about Saint Therese of Lisieux in France.
Our new Come and See topic began this week called ‘Promises.’
Please find below some topic information that we would like to share with you.
Our lives are marked by many different experiences of being welcomed into new situations and groups.
We recognise the importance of welcome, of feeling comfortable with new situations and belonging to new groups. We belong to families, to work places and to social groupings.
Christians believe that everyone is invited to share in the lifeand work of God through Baptism. The Bible recounts God’s invitations to people to share in his life and work: among them Moses, Samuel, the prophets, Mary and the apostles.
“Through Baptism, men and women are incorporated into Christ. They are formed into God’s people and they obtain the forgiveness of all their sins. They become a new creation through water and the Holy Spirit. Hence they are called andare indeed children of God. Signed with the gift of the Spirit in Confirmation, Christians more perfectly become the image of their Lord and are filled with the Holy Spirit. They bear witness to him before all the world and eagerly work for the building up of the body of Christ.” (General Introduction to the Rite of the Christian Initiation of Adults)
Prayer and Reflection to say together as a family...
Almighty and eternal God,
you keep together those you have united.
Look kindly on all who follow Jesus your Son.
We are all consecrated to you by our common baptism;
make us one in the fullness of faith
and keep us one in the fellowship of love.
(Prayer for Various Occasions: for Unity of Christians)
As we think about October being a special month to honour Mary, our Mother, these are the first children to bring in their rosaries, from home, to help in praying our daily decade.
Welcome to our class page where we will share all our learning from Come and See and our Pupil Virtues.
Our first topic in our Come and See learning is ‘Homes.’ We are learning about what God wants our family life to be like- how we should treat each other and expect to be treated in return. We are learning about St Paul and the letters that he wrote offering advice.
Our current Pupil Profile Virtues are ‘ Curious and Active.’
