This week we’re going to focus on what it means to belong.

Our Year 7’s will have their welcome Mass this week and it’s a great opportunity to celebrate the fact that we are all part of something special.

Think this week about what belonging to The Becket means to you.


This week, discuss as a class this week’s statement – don’t forget to have your voice heard. Do you feel like you belong to a faith community?

As a School we belong to the Catholic Church. Whether we are a person faith or not we are connected to the church and that connects us to over a billion people across the world. It’s that connection that has motivated us to try and build a school in Ghana. We’ve teamed up with the Catholic Parish in Bunkperugu and fundraising is already underway. – Check this out:

How can you get involved this year?




We begin with the Sign of the Cross

This whole term is about Being Yourself. It’s about celebrating identity and personality. It’s about seeing the glory of God reflected in each individual. It’s about respecting people for who they are and not judging others for being different.

This week use the Key Process of “Roleplay” to explore the following scenario:

A young person arguing with adults claiming that the school dress code stops them expressing their individuality.

Lord, help us to respect world faiths and also respect each other. Amen.

NEXT STEPSWe 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.

Luke 17: 15-16
When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself to the ground at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan.
How often do you thank God for the amazing things in your life? Do you stay positive and allow others to surprise you and to inspire you by their actions?

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

We finish with the Sign of the Cross.
