Year 6 (19-20) Today’s Work

The Month of May is the Month of Mary

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary for Protection during the COVID–19 Pandemic

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test –
and deliver us from every danger,
O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Fancy something a little different?

Why not write a diary entry as one of your favourite book characters? You could recount one of Harry Potters adventures. Alternatively, you could choose a significant event from a book such as Wonder and recount the event from a different characters perspective. Be as creative as you like!

Need more inspiration?

Take a look at the picture from Pobble 365 below ‘The Hidden Temple’

Read the story starter then image you were one of the group exploring the temple. Why are you there? Why is there a feeling of trepidation in the air? Who are you with? why are you in the jungle? Do you venture in to the temple? What do you discover inside?
