Children to study the offering of the gifts at Mass (Listening and Sharing Topic - LF4), and draw and label the chalice and paten.
Slide 28 on the attached powerpoint has notes and pictures about the chalice and paten. Also, attached word-cards have definitions of chalice and paten, as well as other sacred vessels.
Chalice comes from the Latin term calix which means a cup. It is the name given to the cup or bowl used for the wine in the central act of Christian worship which is known as Holy Communion, Eucharist or Mass. Traditionally it is made of material which is valued in its country of origin.
The paten is the plate, usually of silver or gold which is used to hold the bread at Holy Communion.
Please do not stick this into RE books, as this lesson will follow on from the St.George's lesson on Thursday, in their books, so I will stick it in next week, on my return.
All homework (Spelling, English and Maths) also goes out today. Info about Homework on yesterday's page. Check with LSA that it is all ready to go. Get any marked as a class etc, if not already done so.
