Today Class 5 shared some of the things they have been learning about in their RE lessons with a liturgy about ‘Mission’. They talked to us about our life choices and that central to this, is the mission we have in our lives: the mission to be a child of God.
Through the sacrament of Baptism, all Christians are called to share in the mission of Jesus.
It is not always easy to follow the calling we have been given. It takes courage, commitment and faith to do so. When we are called and asked to do something we may struggle with the confidence to rise to this challenge. However, once we believe in ourselves and trust God to guide us, there is nothing that can stand in our way.
Our faith and our belief in ourselves will shine out and others will follow our example and will be live too.
As it is the 100 year anniversary of the First World War, St. Matthew’s have tasked themselves in making poppies to brighten up the School in remembrance of those that sacrificed their lives to keep our Country safe during the War.
Thank you all so much for the glass jars, have a look to see the fantastic work the children have used them for:
Children have lovingly made poppies to fill the variously sized jars that were so kindly donated. We then placed tea lights in each one, symbolising each year that has passed since the war ended in 1918. We feel that this has made the celebration extra special, as parents have donated their jars and children have added in their fantastic creations to create a whole-community created celebration!
Have a look at the jars fully arranged and on display for all to see!
