Year 5 Holocaust Memorial day Assembly

 

On Wednesday the children in Class Five performed their spring term assembly on a very challenging theme- the theme of the Holocaust. In the assembly the children we are to explain the many challenges that the Jewish people in Europe faced in World War II and how this affected the people who were living at this time. The children dealt with this very sensitively and were able to explain it in a way that could be understood by all. We would like to thank the children for a thought provoking and well- delivered assembly.

Class 5 Laudato Si' Assembly

 

 

We have been called by Pope Francis to think about the impact that our actions have on our planet. We have been tasked to be Stewards of the Earth and as a result have a responsibility to ensure that there are enough resources to support generations to come. The Pope used St Francis of Assisi as his model for how we should take care of our planet. In their assembly, Class Five taught us about the impact we are having on the world through deforestation and pollution which is causing climate change. We prayed together asking God to guide us and help world leaders to make good decisions about how look after earth.

 

We would like to thank the children and the Class Five teaching team for providing us with such an informative assembly.
