Our Catholic Virtues

Summer 2

Being attentive and discerning in our Class Virtues

 

This half term we are looking at the virtues 'attentive' and 'discerning.' In Year One we have reflected on these virtues as a class and have discussed what they mean for us and our lives.

 

We are attentive when:

 

We listen to what God wants for us and respond to the 'call' he has for our lives.

 

We respect our parents and teachers, by listening to them and knowing that they want what is best for us.

 

We take delight in God's Creation, listening to all the wonderful animals and places around us and knowing that they were built for a purpose.

 

We are discerning when:

 

We put our faith into practise, taking time to think about our vocations and how to serve God in all that we do.

 

We consider that path that is set out for us and wish to follow that path, believing in it. 

 

We listen and respond to the needs of others by showing kindness, compassion and forgiveness.

Being curious and active in our Class Virtues

 

 This half term we are looking at the virtues 'curious' and active.'

 

 We are curious when we are engaged in our learning and want to learn more about the different topics we are taught at school. We can be curious by pushing and probing ourselves to ask challenging questions and by striving to find out more. We can also be curious about the world we live in and wonder about how God made something so beautiful and so perfect, for us to enjoy and care for.

 

We are active when se use this curiosity and knowledge to make a difference to the world. We choose to do something about what we have learnt, whether that be working towards the common good, fighting for injustice or working to save our planet. We are active by following the word of God, and trusting Jesus' example, in everything we do, so that we can become better people. 

 

Below you can find some PDF documents with resources and ideas for your child to learn more about the class virtues at home. 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!

Being learned and wise in our Class Virtues

 

This half term we are looking at the virtues 'learned' and 'wise'. 

 

We are learned when we are educated about God and are enriched by God's creation and the people who are a part of it. To be learned is to learn the facts about God and Jesus life and to know what happened through the stories of the Bible and why they are important.

 

We are wise when we used the facts and skills we know and have to change our world for the better. We can ask the lord to gift us with the power of wisdom through the Holy Spirit to see with his eyes, feel with Good's heart and to speak with his words. We are wise when we consider how our actions affect others and how we change ourselves to make the world better and more loving for all.

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!
