Welcome to Year 1's Catholic Life at St Anne's.
On this page you will see pictures of our collective worship sessions, our wonderful Religious Education work and displays and also our themed week on Celebrating Similarities and Differences.
Collective worship is a time where we reflect as a class on lots of important Catholic events and people.
This term we have learnt about Saint Francis of Assisi and his love for God's creation. We have also learnt about Saint Therese of Lisieux and her little ways.
This week (03/11/2015) is our themed week named : Celebrating Similarities and Differences. We have just found out through an exciting lesson that we are going to be learning about Judaism and the festival Hanukkah. During our time this week we have learnt all about the story of Hanukkah and how the Jewish people found some oil which was only supposed to light a candle for 1 day but ity lasted for 8 days and 8 nights. It was a miracle! To celebrate Hanukkah Jewish people celebrate by giving gelts and presents to each other for 8 days and light a Menorah candle for 8 days too.
Here are some pictures of us making some Menorah Candles and the finished outcomes:
In November we remember people who have passed away, and in particular on the 11th November we remember all the soldiers who lost their lives during the World Wars and other wars since. We made our very own poppy wreath and had a collective worship session based on remembrance. We took our poppy to the Prayer Garden where we laid the wreath and said some prayers for the people who lost their lives. We are also having a Remembrance Mass this week.
