Start to write your autobiography. Make sure that you are including:

  • first person
  • a range of sentence types
  • a range of sentence structures – simple, compound and complex
  • accurate tense including the past tense (events that have happened in the past) and the present perfect tense (events that have started in the past but are still happening now)

RECIPROCAL READING

There are four stages to our reciprocal reading:

1) Predict – what do you think this text is going to be about?

2) Clarify – look up any words that you don’t understand using a dictionary.

3) Question – write a question that can be retrieved from the text. Write your answer using a full sentence.

4) Summary – summarise the text in two sentences.

All texts contain a Romanian translation

R.E.

Learning Intention for Wednesday 24th February 2021

We are continuing with our topic ‘unity

To be able to show an understanding of how belief in Jesus, the uniting presence in Holy Communion, shapes the lives of Christians

Read the Eucharistic Prayer for children:

Learning Focus 3 – Eucharistic Prayer for Children III

Our Father presentation 97-2003 format

Reflect on these questions:

  • Which are your favourite words or phrases and why?
  • Which one surprised you and why?
  • How do you think being in communion with Jesus Christ and his Church might make a difference to your life?

I would like you to think of all the ways in which you can work for the peace and unity of your family, class and/or school today. Create a PowerPoint presentation or a poster to illustrate this. Make links to some scripture already studied in this topic, some of the phrases from the Eucharistic Prayer III and your own experience and feelings.

We are currently in the very important season of Lent.

Mrs McEvoy and Mrs Sonko have shared this wonderful calendar that will help us to reflect during this very important time:

Lent-calendar-2021 (1)

We have looked at this from the Cafod website in today’s liturgy:

A special Lenten fast

Give up harsh words: use generous ones.

Give up unhappiness: take up gratitude.

Give up anger: take up gentleness and patience.

Give up pessimism: take up hope and optimism.

Give up worrying: take up trust in God.

Give up complaining: value what you have.

Give up stress: take up prayer.

Give up judging others: discover Jesus within them.

Give up sorrow and bitterness: fill your heart with joy.

Give up selfishness: take up compassion for others.

Give up being unforgiving: learn reconciliation.

Give up words: fill yourself with silence, and listen to others.
