Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

Our Autumn topics are 'All About Me' and 'Space'.
In our Maths unit, we are learning about numbers to 5. Today, we were focusing upon ensuring we are confident in counting to 3 and recognising numbers to 3. We even made the numbers using our bodies!!
