Religious Education

This half term we are focussing on the Christian Value of Friendship.

 Christian Values Cross

Using ceramic tiles kindly donated by one of our governors, each child painted their own representation of a Christian Value. These have been arranged in the shape of a cross and displayed at the back of the hall. Our children are extremely proud of their achievement and enjoy explaining its meaning to visitors to their school.

Time for reflection

The children in Year 1 listened to a hymn called ' Think of the world without any flowers.' Whilst the hymn played, the children reflected on what our wonderful world would be like without any of the wonderful creations of God. The children believed that without God's wonderful creations then the world would be dull and dark. Caleb said 'Without trees we wouldn't be able to breathe so there would be no people on the Earth.' Jack said 'Without sunlight the world would just be so so dark and it would make me sad.'

Think of a world without any flowers.


If you know of any person or family who are going through difficult times, you can let the school office know and we will send them a Prayer Card to let them know they are in our prayers. 


Religious Education displays and Reflection Areas

Every classroom has an Religious Education/Reflection Display. This area provides a focal point for pupils' prayers and reflections.
