Welcome to the class page for Eucalyptus Class
Eucalyptus class are trying to make a small difference by helping others. As Mother Teresa said...
'None of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.'
Eucalyptus class and our Mini Vinnies group are making a commitment to help someone else or to do something to help our environment.
Father Andrew haas displayed them in the church to help to inspire others to do the same.
Some of the things we are doing are:
Donating to the local food bank on a regular basis
Writing prayers for people in our community who are ill
Visiting elderly neighbours...and many more.
Children in Key Stage 2 have volunteered for our 'Mini Vinnies' group at St Joseph's.
The children who became part of the group were presented with their certificates and badges.
Mini Vinnies is the children's section of St Vincent de Paul Society.
We meet every two weeks and we enjoy praying together, sharing scriptures and organising ways in which we can help others.
Our first project was the 'shoebox appeal' which was very successful. We sent 42 shoe boxes from our school to the church in Witney which were then taken to orphanages in Romania in time for Christmas.
We look forward to our next project this term.
Eucalyptus class enjoyed making the Seven Sacraments out of clay as part of our R.E lessons:
We are using www.studio.code.org in class for our coding. There are 20 steps on the Minecraft coding programme and they get increasingly more difficult!
Father Andrew and Mrs Wojciechowska have kindly come in to support our R.E lessons. Father Andrew talked to us about the Sacrament of the Sick and Advent and Mrs Wojciechowska shared her experience of her pilgrimage to Lourdes.
The children asked many good questions and they enjoyed hearing about these interesting aspects of R.E.
