Year 3 class motto: 'Become like a butterfly, learn new things and fly as high as you can.'



Year 3—Being a Christian

“The greatest commandment of all: “Listen Israel, the Lord your God is the one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: you must love your neighbour as yourself.”                                                                                         Mark 12: 29-30

“The truth of our union with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist is tested by whether or not we really love our fellow men and women.”                                                                                                                                     Pope John Paul II, 1979

Year 3 will develop their understanding of what being a Christian involves. They will reflect on the joy and challenges involved in following Jesus and learn about these through the lives of Ss. Peter and Paul. The children will reflect on their gifts and talents and the gifts the Church calls Sacraments, especially the Eucharist. They will reflect on how to use the gifts God has given to us to be a Christian.
