Our Class Saint

 

 

 

 

St William of Perth

 

 

 

Practically most that is known of William comes from the Nova Legenda Anglie, and that is little. He was born in Perth, at that time one of the principal towns of Scotland. In youth, he had been somewhat wild, but on reaching manhood, he devoted himself wholly to the service of God. A baker by trade (some sources say he was a fisherman), he was accustomed to setting aside every tenth loaf for the poor.

 

He went to Mass daily, early one morning he was walking to his bakery as he passed St John’s Church he saw a wicker basket lying in the doorway.  Upon inspection, he saw that the basket contained a sleeping baby. William gently picked up this basket and took it to the warmth of his bakery. As he worked, he thought about this baby, it was clearly abandoned, he then decided as he had no children and was financially secure he could bring this child up as if it were his own. 

 

William was canonised by Pope Alexander IV in 1256 and became St William of Perth, he is the patron saint of adopted children. 

 

Feast Day - Sunday 23rd May. We will celebrate this in school on Monday 24th May.

Class Text

 

 

This half term, we will be using Eva Ibbotsons’ novel, ‘The Abominables’, as an inspiration for our own writing in Literacy. We will look at the varied features of writing and use our findings to include in our own writing. Following this, we will look at diary writing from the perspective of different characters in the story.

Christmas

We will look at the story of the shepherds and how they reacted to the news of Christ’s birth. We will also explore in depth why the crib is an important reminder of the birth of Christ.
