English - This week we will be focussing on Father's Day
Next Sunday, the 21st of June will be Father's Day. This is a special day of celebration, recognising dads, grandads and other father figures in our lives. This is the day for us to say thank you to our fathers. As a result, we will be reading different books and poems about fathers then make our own poems.
We will be making a Father’s Day card on Friday, so you can use your descriptions as an insert for your card. You don’t have to decide to use this one as we will be writing different inserts each day for you to choose from.
R.E. - L.O. : To write a sorry prayer.
We are going to look back on what we learnt about forgiving last week. Remember that the friends of Jesus asked him about forgiving people who had hurt them. Peter thought it would be good to forgive them seven times and that would be quite hard to do. Peter was surprised when Jesus told him that you have to keep on forgiving, but he did say that the person who had done wrong should say sorry and really mean it. Let us remind ourselves about what Jesus told Peter in St. Matthew 18: 21-22 about forgiving:
Sometimes we even hurt our friends, family or God so we need to say sorry and really mean it. Look at the picture below. Who do you think has done wrong? Who should say sorry?
Before completing today's task, have a quiet reflection by reading the sorry prayer below. Reflect on a time that you have hurt some and had to say sorry. Did you say sorry? In your own way say a sorry pray to God and ask for his forgiveness.
Make up a sorry prayer : beginning: Dear God I am sorry for...
Remember to end your prayer with 'Amen'
