TOPIC Being Sorry


LEARNING FOCUS 5: Saying sorry.

Use the picture of children making up after a quarrel from Church’s Story 2 page 45. Sometimes we quarrel with each other and have arguments, it is important to say sorry and to forgive others when they say sorry to us.  God always forgives us when we are sorry.

Here is a suggestion for a sorry prayer, which focuses on God’s love.

God, our Father, thank you for loving me.                                                                                   I am sorry for the times I have not shown love to others.                                                         Help me always to live like Jesus.  Amen.


Can you write your own sorry prayer and illustrate it?


LEARNING FOCUS 6: We are happy when we love one another.

Read A New Rule based on John 13:34-35.  In John’s gospel, we hear about a new rule Jesus gave us.  It is a rule which Jesus always kept.  Jesus is always there to help us. 

Using the picture from God’s Story 2 pages 72-73 talk about the actions of the children.  When we are living out Jesus’ new rule to ‘love one another’ this is shown in our thoughts and actions.  Discuss what else the children could say and do to show they were living out the new rule. (Shaking hands as a sign of peace etc.)  It is good to make up when we don’t keep this rule and try not to let it happen again. 


During Mass, after the Our Father, the people are invited to share with one another a sign of peace.  They can shake hands and say, ‘Peace be with you’.  In this way, they are living out Jesus’ new rule by showing they want to be friends with one another.


Can you record on a template of a hand ways we can live out Jesus’ new rule?

Foundation Subjects

The Oak academy has some fantastic foundation lessons prepared. Please click on each lesson title for the link.


Who was Sir Ernest Shackleton?

Today, we will be learning all about the incredible adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton. He wanted to be the first man to reach the South Pole. Sadly, after 4 attempts to get there, he never made it. During this lesson, we look back at the heroic journey Shackleton and his team took, trying to reach the South Pole.


Who is Sir Ranulph Fiennes?

Today we are going to be learning about the exciting life of Sir Ranulph Fiennes. He has been called the world’s greatest living explorer! Ranulph is a British explorer who is attempting a new record-breaking challenge to raise money for charity. If he succeeds, he will become the first person to cross the North and South Poles and climb the highest mountain on each of the world’s seven continents. He has 3 continents to go.


What are the 5 senses?

Today we are going to be learning about the five senses. Our bodies do some amazing things. They allow us to see the wonderful world around us, hear things and taste delicious foods. We will be looking at which body part relates to each sense and conducting a sound exploration using our ears.


To investigate warm and cool colours.

In today’s lesson, we will be focusing on how colours can be categorised into warm and cool. Warm colours help us think of warm and cosy things, while cool colours may remind us of fresh, calm and chilly things. We will create a piece of work inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, who used warm and cool colours in her artwork. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and some paints or colouring pencils.
