John Paul II Foundation for Sport

Year Five are embarking on the John Paul II Foundation for Sports Programme. We will be developing our own attitude towards sports whilst focusing on the following virtues:

- Self-Direction

- Nobility

- Gratitude

- Determination

- Resilience

- Optimism

- Politeness

- Team work

JP2F4S aims to enable an ever increasing number of people – in particular the young – to achieve the holistic fulfilment of their potential by acquiring the life skills – call them virtues – taught and lived by St John Paul and which cannot be learned in front of a screen but can be learned through reflecting on sport and physical education.

RE

Half Term 1:

Creation 

 In RE we will be looking at some of the questions which people have been asking about creation for a long time. We will delve into both the Scientific Truths and Theological Truths about creation.  A big issue in today's world is  suffering . We will study the story of 'The Fall' to help us understand how suffering came about. From this story we will be able to discuss how we can become better co-creators of God's world.

HALF TERM 2: COVENANTS

covenants-523x477.jpg

We have been having some in depth discussions about God's power and His anger. Our focus has been the Old Testaments and looking at the life of Abram (Abraham), Noah and Moses. God made covenants which each man: but were the covenants fulfilled?

By entering Advent we turn our thoughts towards Jesus. God promised he would send the Messiah to guide and lead us - The ultimate convenant made between God and us. 

Half Term 3: Inspirational People

 This half-term we are looking at people in history who have inspired us or who have changed the world for the better. One of our main focuses will be on John Paul II. We will embark on our virtues course which is set by the John Paul II Foundation for Sports.   Our assembly for this half-term will show off what we know about Inspirational People - Friday 19th January.

HT4 - Reconciliation

This half term has kicked off with a bang. The children have already started posing meaningful questions about reconciliation and forgiveness. One example being - 'Can a priest tell the police if someone has committed a horrendous crime?' We discussed this question in depth with some children disagreeing with the Seal of Confession... The sacramental seal is inviolable. Quoting Canon 983.1 of the Code of Canon Law, the Catechism states, "...It is a crime for a confessor in any way to betray a penitent by word or in any other manner or for any reason" (No. 2490). A priest, therefore, cannot break the seal to save his own life, to protect his good name, to refute a false accusation, to save the life of another, to aid the course of justice (like reporting a crime), or to avert a public calamity. It has been great to see the children maturing in their questioning this year and I am sure they will all continue to develop this over the rest of the year.

We have been working hard to identify a variety of different coastal features. We have looked at the impact of weathering, discussed and researched coastal land features (caves, arches, stacks and stumps) and have debated which coastal defence is the most effective and why.
