Aspire not have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Religious Education

As a class we have explored the Laudato Si’ written by Pope Francis. We learned that the Laudato Si’ discusses the damage being inflicted on the Earth by humans and calls on ‘every person living on this planet’ to make urgent changes to our lifestyles and how we consume energy in order to protect the planet.

As part of our RE topic, we have been looking at the wonders of creation and how we can upset the balance. 

We learned that in his letter Pope Francis implores us to work together to create a better world for future generations and asks us to make the necessary changes in our lives in order to take care of, respect and value our ‘common home’. We discussed what changes we could make personally and in our wider communities and came up with our own Laudato Si’ style poster slogans.

We have been exploring what it means to be 'Stewards of Creation.' We have been discussing ways we can use our gifts to be 'co-creators' rather than 'de-creators.' We have used : the book of Genesis, the 'Parable of the Three Servants', the work of Nelson Mandela and the Laudato Si' to design and create our own 'Crowns of Creation.'    

Look at our wonderful 'Crowns of Creation!'

The children in Oak class are co-creators!
