Term 1 Week 7 – St. Martin

Our religion lesson for this week was also related to our topic work.  We emphasized the importance of showing our love to our family.  The children watched the story:

Guess how much I love You by Sam McBratney.

We discussed that there are people who although don’t form part of our family still have a very big heart and are ready to help other people in need.  A classic example is St. Mother Theresa and St. Martin.

Two boys acted out the story of when St. Martin saved a poor man from dying by tearing his cloak in half to protect him from the cold weather.

We ended the lesson by creating a craft of St. Martin with a two coloured cloak representing the splitting of the cloak in half to save the poor man’s life.
