Catholic Virtues

Summer 1

Being Compassionate and Loving in our Class Virtues


This half term we are looking at the virtues of compassionate and loving. We are compassionate when we care about those around us and want others to be happy and to feel at peace. We should want to do good deeds for others, no matter how big or small just to show that we care. In class we can show compassion by caring for each other and working together as a big family to promote peace, love and unity.

 

We are loving when we see the good in others and seek to show love to everyone we meet. not just family and friends but enemies and strangers too. If someone is hurting or is upset we should love to them, and this can be shown through our behaviour on the playground. We should look out for each other and help people who are struggling or lonely. This shows true and pure love. We can also show self love to ourselves by loving the bodies God gave us and looking after them so that they can be the best we can be. By eating healthy foods and exercising regularly, we show love and self- care to our bodies and ourselves, which is so important. 

 

Please ask the children about the virtues they have been learning in class 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!

Spring 2

Being Attentive and Discerning in our Class Virtues

 

This half term we are looking at the virtues of attentive and discerning. We are attentive when we listen to our calling from God to love and serve one another in all that we do. We are attentive to our experiences and can see where they will take us in our future vocations. By listening to God's call and his voice in our prayers we can decide what he wants for us. God always knows what is best for our lives and will lead us on the right path. We can  also be attentive in how we see others and their feelings- if somebody seems sad or worried we should comfort them and offer them support. We need to be attentive to those who need our help and kindness.

 

 

We are discerning We are discerning when we 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. Sometimes we decide to use our time to help others who are in need. We discern that this is the right choice as we are using our gifts and talents to help those who are in a less fortunate position than ourselves. 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 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!

 

 

 

This half term we are looking at the virtues of attentive and discerning. We spoke about what these virtues mean today as a class and did a whole class brainstorm of how we can show these virtues in our class and everyday life.  Please see pictures of our children thinking about our class virtue for this half term below.

Spring 1

Being Grateful and Generous in our Class Virtues

 

This half term we are  looking at the virtues of grateful and generous. We are grateful when we take heed of what we have and thank God and Jesus for all of our talents and blessings. We notice life around us and are grateful for the preciousness of life. We also feel gratitude for both our own skills and the talents of those around us. We are grateful to receive education within our school and to be lucky enough to go to school each day, whether that be in class as a key worker or learning remotely at home.

 

 

We are generous in how we share our gifts and talents wisely with others, so that the world can become a better place. We can show generosity in spreading our love and kindness to everyone we meet, being a beacon of light, just like Jesus was. We can be generous with our time and efforts, giving it to those who need us most and may need support and guidance, particularly in these difficult times.

 

Please ask the children about the virtues they have been learning in class and ask them, how they will fulfill and carry out these virtues in their daily life. We would love to hear what they tell you!

Autumn 2

Being Intentional and Prophetic in our Class Virtues

 

This half term we are  looking at the virtues of intentional and prophetic. We are intentional in the way we live our lives and use the resources of the Earth, guided by morality. We can be intentional as a school community in trying to advance our school and build a better quality of life. Using wisdom and judgement we can live our lives more intentionally living in the present moment rather than the past or future.

 

 

We are prophetic in the example we set to others and when we have a Christ Centred approach and vision to our lives. We can be prophetic by living our lives rooted in the Gospel and understanding and realising what it is to be a good and kind human. Jesus lived his live prophetically and we should strive to be like him in all that we do and say.

 

Please ask the children about the virtues they have been learning in class and ask them, how they will fulfill and carry out these virtues in their daily life. We would love to hear what they tell you!

Being Active and Curious in our Class Virtues

We are active when we notice the daily blessing in our lives and are thankful for all that we have in the world. We are also active when we bring enjoyment and meaning to our lives through following out the word of God.

 

We are curious when we wish to find out more about God's wonderful world and ask questions about the things he has created. We wish to find out more about life and how things work and appreciate his wonderful Creation.
