Catholic Virtues

Year 5 Catholic Virtues Award


Each half term, we focus on two different Catholic Virtues.  As a class, we explore what the virtues mean and how we can show we are fulfilling them on a daily basis.  During the half term, the class will nominate a person who has fulfilled the Catholic Virtues and will award them with the 'Virtues' award.

Spring 2 Catholic Virtues - Intentional and Prophetic

Our Catholic Virtues for this half term are Intentional and Prophetic.  As a class, we've thought about times when we are both intentional and prophetic and how this can help others.

We are intentional when we...

  • think carefully about charities that we would like to support and how we can best help them,
  • plan to buy extra items in our food shop to donate to food banks,
  • plan to buy gifts from CAFOD to help others around the world who need our help most,
  • consider our Common Home and work to tackle pollution.


We are prophetic when we...

  • use the three pillars of Lent as our guide during this special season,
  • listen to how God wants us to support those who are less fortunate than we are,
  • talk to God through prayer, asking Him to guide us,
  • meditate on our choices to consider what is right and wrong,
  • listen out for a vocational call from God to know what we might grow up to be.

Spring 1 Virtues Award Winner

Catholic Virtues: Curious and Active

The third Catholic Virtues Award winner is the fabulous.. Kanika!

Kanika embraces everything with curiosity and a desire to what to know more.  She actively seeks for more information about many of the subjects she studies and demonstrates that her learning does not simply take place within the classroom.  Her work is always very reflective and insightful, and this makes her a very worthy winner of the class virtues award.

Catholic Virtues: Eloquent and Truthful

The first Catholic Virtues Award winner is the wonderful... Jayden!

Jayden was an obvious choice for the award this half term as he really does demonstrate the virtues of being eloquent and truthful on a daily basis.  His manners are fantastic and he always speaks to everyone with respect.  When he contributes in class, his answers are insightful and clearly delivered.  He believes in the truth and is not afraid to share this with others, a quality that should be admired by his peers.  Well done Jayden!
