Grateful and Generous
Prophetic and Intentional
This week we have been looking at our new values and virtues. This half-term they are Prophetic and Intentional.
Intentional: We plan our actions and live how God wants us to.
Father Hudson says "every action we make has an impact on other people and the world around us. If we live intentionally, we listen to our conscience and deliberately decide that the actions we take will have a positive impact. We use the earth’s resources wisely, think about the choices we make, and care for God’s creation."
Prophetic: We spread the word of God through how we live our lives.
Father Hudson says "as we choose to act intentionally and make good decisions, we encourage others to do the same. We set a good example through our words and deeds and inspire other people to act in a positive and wise way. We help people to make the right decisions themselves and think about how God wants them to live their lives."
Curious and Active
This half-term our values and virtues are curious and active. We used magnifying glasses to write down something we are curious about and would like to discover. We thought about how we could be active in our learning and how we could find out about these things this half-term. Some of us also thought about how we could be compassionate by being active in looking after others in our school community.
Learned and Wise
Year 2 have been thinking about how we can be learned and wise in class this half term. We have made posters to show what learned and wise means to us. We will be showing these values and virtues in our attitudes and learning this half term.
Faith-filled and Hopeful
Our values and virtues this half term are faith-filled and hopeful. The children worked in small groups to design these posters. They thought about what the words meant to them and the ways that they are faith-filled and hopeful. The children also thought of people within our school community who show these traits. The children have the opportunity to nominate others in the class who have shown these values and virtues. We proudly display these names on our class board.
