In Religious Education, the Year 5s have been learning about virtues. A virtue is a habit of choosing what is good, and so includes the habit of doing right.
In Year 5, we have been learning that followers of Jesus find that they can develop the habit of making choices that are good by following these four virtues:

  • Prudence
  • Justice
  • Fortitude
  • Temperance

One of the virtues we discussed was temperance which is the ability to control oneself. People develop temperance when they learn to temper their thoughts and actions. One way we discussed that could help temper our thoughts and actions, would be to draw about how we are feeling. Here are some drawings that we did that express our emotions.
