Week 5 - “We are an Easter People!”


Become a ‘Missionary Disciple’ in Eastertide.


[Easter Sunday to Pentecost]


Take the Challenge!

1. Read a Bible story every weekend or ask a grown up to read one to you.

2. Tell your favourite Bible story to a friend, sibling or other family member.

3. Ask someone to share with you a Bible or religious story that is special to them.

4. Make a poster about Jesus and put it on your bedroom window so people can see it.

5. Learn the names of Jesus’ Twelve Disciples. Who is your favourite disciple and why?

6. When you meet someone who is feeling sad, tell them you will say a prayer for them – and remember to do it!

7. Find a new charity to help who needs our help right now and what can we do to help them?

8. If you don’t usually go to Church, ask your parent/carer if they will go to virtual church on Sunday. There are lots of places you can join in with weekly Mass online, see the links below.

9. Look for an opportunity every day to do an act of kindness for someone.

10. Be joyful – Jesus loves you!

Week 4 - This week’s theme is Faith.


Having faith can be tough. It means believing in something that you cannot know for certain and in a world where there is almost an answer for everything, this can be difficult. Have a think about your faith and what you believe in. What makes it hard to believe in God? Asking questions is a really important part of growing in faith. This week make some time to ask questions of the people around you – ask them why they believe what they do and through this try and understand your own faith a little bit more.

NDCYS, the Nottingham Diocese Youth Service, have lots of great RE ideas. Please take a look.

Our Catholic Life


Please look at the 'Our Catholic Life' section of the website which can be found on the 'Our School' tab.


There is new content being added each day by Miss Fitzpatrick so please take a look.  The prayer for today is, 'Calm my Fears'. You could share this prayer with your family, write your favourite words and phrases before decorating them in your home learning books.


Calm My Fears 
Eternal Father, you know my past, present and future, nothing is unknown to you.

When I worry about what is ahead of me, please calm my fears with the knowledge that you go before me.

I will never be alone because you will always be with me.

You have promised that you will not fail me or forsake me and you are faithful to keep all your promises.

Take away my fear and replace it with faith in your unending love.

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
