At our school, we have recently changed the names of our House Teams. Having thought very carefully about the important Saints that we have learnt about, we decided to name our House Teams following the lives of Saints:
At Our Lady of Fatima School, each class has their own 'Faith Model' that they research and learn about in more detail. The idea of a 'Faith Model' at Our Lady of Fatima is that they are a source of inspiration for the children within that class, and at different times they can ask for spiritual guidance to help or guide them on their own journey of faith.
On each 'Faith Model’s' feast day, the children give thanks for their impact on the world around them by celebrating in many different ways: praying, singing, undertaking artwork and many more!
|Class||Saint's Name||Feast Day|
|Reception||The Holy Family||October/May|
|Year 1||Saint Francis of Assisi||4th October|
|Year 2||Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta||5th September|
|Year 3||Saint Bernadette||16th April|
|Year 4||Saint Oscar Romero||24th March|
|Year 5||Blessed Carlo Acutis||12th October|
|Year 6||Saint Martin De Porres||27th September|
The Feast Day for our school Saint - Our Lady of Fatima - is 13th May.
We ran a competition within each year groups challenging the children to draw their class saint and explain why that saint was chosen and why they are important to each class.
Congratulations to the winners who are:
