Year 5 ended their Hope topic by thinking about what they would say to Jesus if they actually met him in real life – like really soon – like this weekend even! They thought they would say they have tried really hard to live as Saint Paul told the Colossians, to clothe themselves in compassion, kindness, to trust God and be patient. Also, to put up with each other. That’s easier said than done. But we try, we really do
Emilia: What I do to help people is like an Advent calendar – every day you do something good. Instead of getting something, you do something to help. It makes you feel like you have achieved something. If we all did that the world would be a wonderful place.
Godmi: If I met Jesus I would bow my head and ask him how to show virtues and how we can encounter him and show discipleship to others who don’t know him. I have been living my life, sometimes in sorrow, sometimes in relief and think of my mum being a saint in heaven watching over me Our end of topic is linked to Mark13: 33 and James 5: 7-8 which talk about how we have to start being good, waiting patiently, trying our best to live as Saint Paul told us to – because we don’t know when Jesus will come back but we want to be ready for him.
Sienna W: If I met Jesus I would say that I’m sorry for my sins. I tried to get ready to meet you by trying to be patient with my family. I know how much you love us and I’ve tried to be strong as the scriptures told me to do.
Year 5 sold toast every breaktime for CAFOD World Gifts. Year 3 sold hot dogs and cakes and Year 4 is organising a whole school Pyjama day on the last day of term which is really exciting because we can bring blankets and watch films. We tried to remember other people during Advent to show love and service to others – following Mary’s example when she went to visit Elizabeth while she was waiting for others.
Jacinta: If Jesus came today, I would have said that I am sorry for all I did wrong and ask him to forgive me. I would ask him what my life will be like. I prepared to meet him by trying not to get into arguments
