Welcome to Year 1.
Families and Celebrations
“The Christian family … can and should be called a domestic church.
It is a community of faith, hope and charity”
Catechism of the Catholic Church
The children will learn about what it means to be a member of a family and
to be a member of the school community. They will learn what it means to
belong to the Church family.
They will hear how Jesus’ family took him to the Temple and think about why this was a special occasion. They will learn about some of the celebrations in the Church and why we celebrate these occasions.
At home you could help your children by:
• discussing the importance of celebrations in our lives
• encourage children to think about Church celebrations e.g. Christmas, Easter etc
