The Creation Story
Daisy Class have been learning all about the Creation Story in their RE lessons. During their lesson, they created some fantastic team pictures to show how the world was created. They also created some of the animals out of playdough and they also had a go at making the world in their Small World Area in the classroom.
Expressing ideas about God
This half term, Angela Class are focusing on the question - "What does it mean if God is holy and loving?". After studying three passages from the bible (Psalm 103, Isaiah 6:1-6 and John 4:7-12), the children were asked to express their learning and ideas about God in words, pictures and colours.
Daisy Class's Easter Garden
During Spring 2, Daisy's RE question was "Why do Christians put a cross in an Easter Garden?". They looked at Christian symbols and the significance of the cross. They then read the Easter Story and, during Forest School, the children created their own Easter Gardens.
Imran, our Muslim friend
As part of our RE in school, we learn about Islam. To help us with our learning, Imran, a Muslim religious education advisor, came to our school and led an assembly and an activity for both KS1 and 2. Imran brought along lots of special objects which are important to Muslims in their everyday lives including the Qu'ran, perfume and the different head pieces for the children to try on. He also brought the precious black box that symbolises Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Our Diwali Celebrations
The whole school spent the day learning about Diwali and how it is celebrated. The children learnt about Hinduism - the main beliefs, the Vedas, the Mandir and their important symbols. They also took part in a range of activities linked to the celebration of Diwali including creating Rangoli Patterns and drama. For lunch, Oruna, a local restaurant, provided the children with different samples of food that would be eaten during the Diwali celebrations which the children thoroughly enjoyed!
Open Door at Shrewsbury Abbey
Our Year 5 and 6 class took part in the Open Door event at Shrewsbury Abbey. The children got to choose from a range of activities including First Aid, banner making, stole designing as well as a Lego activity linked to the story of The Good Samaritan.
