St Paul's Catholic Primary School

Alive in Jesus



Spring 1 : 2022


A happy new year to you and your families year 6. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for a busy 2022!

Our virtues for this half term are Curious & Active
Curious: Exploring God’s creation and asking questions to find out more. Everything around us was created by God. Being curious about these things – from tiny insects to enormous planets, from the languages of the Earth to the patterns made by numbers – brings us closer to God.
Active: Working to make things better where we can. Making the right choices to how to act. As we use our curiosity to explore, we find things that could be better: a friend is unhappy; a neighbour is lonely; there is litter in the playground; the whiteboard needs wiping. Some of these problems we can fix. By being active we take responsibility for these tasks and look after God’s creation.
Please share this Prayer with your child
Help me Jesus
Know your ways
Through the night
Through the days
Give me love
To show a friend
You’re always there
You never end

The Good Samaritan

 The parable of the Good Samaritan is an example of being curious and active. We can follow the example of the Good Samaritan.

Way Home by Libby Hathorn (2003-01-23): Libby Hathorn: Books

Way Home by Libby Hathorn and Gregory Rogers.

Shane is a boy who lives alone on the streets. We don’t realise this until the end of the book, when he takes the cat he has found back home with him to a shelter filled with his possessions, to be his friend. Shane's fast paced story is told to the cat. The illustrations in this picture book are very evocative, full of symbols and meanings that add to what we learn about Shane and his life.

The Houses of Parliament are an important example of Victorian Architecture and were designed by the Victorian architect, Charles Barry. The design shows gothic and classical influences and is characterised by stained glass windows, ribbed vaulted ceilings and painted arches. We will locate and sketch Victorian Architecture in our local environment and in London, specifically, the Parthenon and Westminster Abbey.

We will then move onto the Pre- Raphaelites and understand what they stood for. The focus will be on the painting of The Annunciation by Rosetti and his realistic depiction of the angel Gabriel and Mary.
