Saint Augustine`s RC High School Primary Science and Mathematics Quiz 2018
A proud team
Heroes and Villains
This term we have been looking at Heroes and Villains. We have had fun creating a recipe for a Villain, adding lots of nasty ingredients to the mix. At home the children have been busy designing and making masks, in the image of their chosen Villain.
Next we went on to study a range of inspirational people, who are Heroes in our eyes. People like Mother Teresa, Lady Diana Spencer and Amelia Mary Earhart. The children wrote a Biography on their chosen Hero, taking their choice from History, Film, Sport and the world of music.
In Religion we looked at how Jesus is depicted in the Bible, we had a debate to decide if Jesus is our Hero. We based our assembly on our findings...
Jesus our Hero
Luke 4 14-15
"Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues and everyone praise him."
Our aim is to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, being a hero in the eyes of those who we love and care for.
In our assembly we dressed as our chosen Hero for the day. We agreed that anyone can be a Hero, shown by their words and actions. Many of the children came dressed as a family member, someone who had looked after them during their lives or someone they admired.
Hero for a day.
