When we are committed to each other it reminds us all of the common bond that holds us all together. It reminds us that we are all part of one family – God’s family – and that no matter our differences we all have something in common.

Family, this week’s word of the week, is a word that means lots of different things to different people. For many it’s about the people we go home to, but it can just as easily be about those we feel safe and secure around, those with who we feel loved. This week we’re going to think about our families at home, our families at school and just what it means to belong.


The ‘Word of the Week’

If you’ve still not made your form door a door of Mercy yet then make a sign and put it up! Also, as you heard in the video, take some time today to praise and celebrate the people you sit next to today. It’s easier to show to love to others who need it if we are empowered and inspired by people showing love to us!

Big Question

Blood is thicker than water – discuss. (If you don’t know what that means – look it up!)

Express your thoughts in the comments box below.

Each day you’ll be able to see what other people are thinking in the other forms and have a chance to respond with your thoughts/comments. Come back to the discussion each morning if you can!

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

We are three weeks into January. How are those new year’s resolutions going?!  Commitment is about seeing things through – about keeping your promises. When we look to God we see someone who keeps his promises – but can we be the same.

Watch this:

Stand up and find a new seat next to someone different.

Share with each other what the video reminded you of.

Ask each other: What does family mean to you?

imagesForm time AoW should always start and end with the Sign of the Cross.

Each day when you’ve finished your discussion/activities spend a few moments in silence to think about the day ahead.

If anybody has anything or anyone they would like to pray for then don’t be afraid to share this with everyone before your end your form time AoW.

You might even want to create a prayer box that you can put intentions into each week if you don’t feel like saying it out loud.

This whole term is about Networks and how we connect with those around us.

This week use the Key Process of “Role Play” to explore  the following scenario.

A group of noisy and disruptive neighbours have moved in next to your family. You’re trying to work out your differences.

Lord, help us to understand how we connect with other people and to form positive and healthy relationships. Amen.

Word Association

We begin with the Sign of the Cross

As you know, we are going to use the Scripture from this Sunday’s Gospel to reflect on every Friday. If you are in KS 3/4 You can use your planners to to help you understand the scripture.

This year we want to bring the Word of God to life on a Friday morning to help us reflect and understand scripture a little bit better, so with the help of our school community a different person each week will read our Gospel and share what it means to them. Use your planners to help you discuss and explore the story further.

Lord, help us to listen to and follow your word. Amen.

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
