Year 1 Catholic Virtues Award
Each half term, we focus on two different Catholic Virtues. As a class, we explore and discover what the virtues mean and how we can show we are fulfilling them on a daily basis. Every half term, we will choose a person who has express the Catholic Virtues and we will award them with the 'Catholic Virtues' award.
Being eloquent and truthful in our Class Virtues
This half term we are looking at the virtues 'eloquent' and 'truthful'. We are eloquent when we use our voices and our words to speak loving words about God and to spread his word. We can tell people about the love of Jesus and how he can be a force for good and change in our lives.
We are discerning when we make good choices with God and Jesus at the centre of our thoughts. We can decide to do the right thing in the interest of the needs of others because we know the positive impact that will have on their lives. We can be discerning when we have listened to God's will and then put it into practise- we understand what he asks us to do and begin to achieve it.
Please ask the children about the virtues they have been learning in class this half term and ask them, how they will fulfil and carry out these virtues in their daily life. We would love to hear what they tell you!
