The Liturgical Year

The Liturgical Year 1

During our topic of 'Journeys', we have been learning all about the Church's liturgical year.

The children created information booklets that described the liturgical year and some of the different colours, signs and symbols associated with the different seasons and celebrations.

We shared our information booklets with the parishioners at Mass on Sunday.

 

Our parishioners kindly sent some wonderful feedback back to the children about their work:

 

'It was very useful to see all the information about the different colours in church.'

 

'Excellent presentation and very clearly explained.'

 

'This is a lovely description of how the Church's year is set out. I love the picture on the front - it is a good reminder of the different colours used during the year. I particularly like how you have explained why celebrations are so special. Well done for producing this lovely leaflet.'

 

'This has helped me understand all about The Liturgical Year. Thank you so much. It was beautifully written.'

 

'Excellent information, clearly written and explained. Beautiful presentation.'

 

'Well presented. You have a lot of knowledge about the liturgical year. Well done!'

 

'It was a pleasure to read all that you wrote. God Bless.'

Welcome to Saint Joseph's!

In Class 3 we have been learning about the Romans. As part of their learning the children were allowed to chose a certain area that interested  them for further study. Some of the projects we have received have been fantastic and really show how creative and imaginative we can be in Class 3! We even had a Roman toilet!
