    Bede was such a great man. He loved to teach and learn so he was a teacher and a student. I’m so happy for tommorrow!

    Reading and learning about bede is really fun! I cant believe how determined he was.

  4. Today I have learnt that st Bede was not a saint that would travel the world to preach, he would only stay in England.

    I have learnt that Bede spent his time in prayer and study. That is how he became a priest at the age of thirty.
    I now understand that in order order for Bede to teach what he had learnt to others, Bede began to write.

    I understand that Bede saw the word of God as pepper, very valuble and life saving.

    I understand that Bede saw God’s word as life, even until the end of life.
    I now know that Bede saw teaching as a delight.

    • Great reflections Lana. Why do you believe that Bede saw the word of God as being like pepper?

  7. St Bedes day was awesome! We went to church in the morning. Then shortly after we did some class twittering. Then after recess we did our walk-a-thon. the best part of the day was obviously the walk-a-thon. We went around the block to raise money for Our Lady of the Mission. I raised 5 dollars from doing 10 laps. I did 50c per lap. All though it was called a walk-a-thon a lot of people ran. (including me πŸ™‚ ) I thought we had a really fun day and i learnt a lot about St Bede.


  8. St Bedes day was the best. First we went to mass and learnt a bit about St Bede then we went back to our class and did some twittering about St Bede. My favourite part of the day was the walkathon. We had to raise money for our lady mission and a lot of people ran in the walkathon. So from then on it was not a walkathon but a marathon. In the end everyone ran. I ran 10 laps so I raised $10 for the charity. I was very happy that I raised some money for their charity and I’m glad that I did the activity. After the walkathon we had a police band come in called code 1 which was pretty cool. I loved St Bede day and want to do it again.
