This term we have talked through the values of Hope, Trust and Endurance.
We understand that sometimes events or activities that we undertake can be difficult but that we must find strength to see them through and reflect upon the experience as a positive one.
We used word cards to write our own class prayer:
Thank you for giving us the strength and power to carry on when life gets tough.
Please help me find endurance and goodness.
I love you.
We wore our 'Hope' glasses and wrote about our hopes for our future. What job did we hope to have? Where did we hope to live? What sort of person did we hope to be?
We also made our reflection stones to hold when we feel like we need support.
We have been learning about God's messengers, the Angels. We have thought about their job and how it feels to pass on Good News to others. We have shared in Mary's joy at receiving her message from Angel Gabriel that she would become the Mother to God's son, Jesus. We explored the feelings of the Shepherds when they received their news of Jesus' birth too.
