In Year 5, we have been focusing on Caritas.
There are 6 main features that we focus on:
– Care for Creation
– Human Dignity
– Dignity in Work
– Option for the Poor
– Solidarity and Peace
– Community and Participation
Every week we have been focusing on each one and learning what they mean.
In Week 1 we learnt about Human Dignity. We learnt about our qualities and how they can be useful.
In Week 2 our class learnt about Community and Participation and we made a table about who is important to us.
In Week 3 we looked at Care for Creation. We made a pledge about how we can care for the planet.
In Week 4 we made a table of people who need help and how we can help them.
In Week 5 we did Option for the Poor by creating a basket for items that could be used in an emergency.
In Week 6 we made a wheel of key issues in our community.
Right now we are thinking of a social project that would help our community. An idea came to use to help a charity that helps women refugees.
We are also looking at other social projects that we can help with.
