RE in our school
In each class, the children learn about specific RE topics of work alongside work that links with our current Assembly theme, covering 1 of our 7 values. Each class displays these activities as well as in their classrooms and other display areas such as the school hall. For further details on the topics studied in each class, please refer to Class specific pages or to the RE curriculum section of the website by clicking here:
Our class topic for this half term is I am special. We have been looking at the ways we are special, unique, made and loved by God. We have compared how we are the same, as we are all in Reception class at Holy Trinity but that we are all different – we look different and like different things. We have talked about the different things we like doing such as drawing, playing with our toys and riding our bikes. We have also discussed our favourite colour and our favourite food. We are looking at all the different things we can do now that we couldn’t do as a baby.
We have also been learning about why we celebrate Harvest and how important it is to give food to others less fortunate than ourselves. During the Harvest Festival we all received our very own Bibles which had been blessed by Father Ian.
Our Christian value this half term is trust so we talked about who we trust and have drawn some pictures of the people we trust.
We are learning about the other Christian values and have drawn some pictures of us smiling to show kindness and generosity. We talked about how generous our families were at the food donations for our Harvest Festival.
Our class topic for this half term is both Creation and Harvest. We have learned all about the story of creation and expressed our own creativity too! We have explored the meaning of the Harvest festival and enjoyed being part of our school celebration in church.
“This is what God the Lord says— the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: — Isaiah 42:5 (NIV)”
In Class 1, we have also been thinking about trust and its meaning. We created our very own trust tree to represent our ideas.
This half term, our classroom displays show the different types of trust we have been learning about including people we trust and how we can trust the Lord with all our heart. We have also been finding out all about The Bible and what stories and information we can find in there. We have also begun to learn more about the meaning of 'Fidre et Labour' which is representative of our school emblem and vision for our school.
This half term we have thought about all the people we trust in our lives. We created 'Trust Trees' to show all the people we can rely on in our lives. Lots of us chose family and friends. We discussed how lucky we are to have so many people in our lives that we can trust. We explored that we can always trust God, He will help guide us in our lives.
Our topic in class is Harvest. We have explore what Harvest is and discovered how it is celebrated around the world. We also enjoyed being part of our whole school celebration of Harvest. Have a look at some of our class work here:
This half term our class topic has been about God, David and the Psalms. We have learnt about the story of David and Goliath. We have discussed how David displayed courage, one of our school values, when standing up to Goliath. We became news reporters and travelled back in time to the fight. We recorded the events that happened on this day.
Our school focus this half term is trust. We have discussed people that we trust and what makes an individual trustworthy.
We have also focused on our school value, truthfulness. We have spoken about the importance of telling the truth.
This half term, our classroom displays show the different types of trust we have been learning about including people we trust and what trust means to us individually. We have also been finding out all about The Bible and what stories and information we can find in there.
This term in year 6, we are learning about the importance of TRUST. We have designed a 'Tree of Trust' that we can share with the rest of the school, highlighting the different ways we trust God. We have also created some amazing art work to represent one of our other core Christian values - COURAGE-from the bible story of David and Goliath. Our current class R.E. topic is 'Life as a Journey' were we will be discovering the importance of PILGRIMAGE in different faiths as well as Christianity.
