Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.
In Ecclesall, our class saint is Saint Maximilian Kolbe. St. Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish priest who volunteered to die in the place of a stranger he met in Auschwitz concentration camp. St. Maximilian Kolbe feast day is the 14th of August.
In our new geography topic we will be researching, understanding and presenting all about volcanoes!
Godly Play is an amazing tool to help enhance the spiritual growth of our children at St Patricks. Over the last few years we have been building up our own set of resources and some of the staff have been on training so that we can deliver Godly Play sessions in class.
