During the Autumn term, we will be asking some big questions in Reception class about the world around us and special people in our lives, including those who help us. KS1 will be looking at Harvest (including the Jewish festival of Sukkot) also exploring the Bible and Holy books from other faiths. We will also soon, be spending lots of time thinking about Christmas and the Nativity.
KS2 are also looking at Harvest and revisiting the Jewish festival of Sukkot, investigating expressing faith through art, prayer and meditation, looking at Holy books from all faiths, Christmas traditions around the world, life Journeys (including pilgrimages within non-Christian faiths and the impact we can have on change in today's society.
Wow we are going to be busy!!!!
2021 Children's RE Conference
On Tuesday 9th November, Mrs. Wilton, Ayo and Lola from year 6, attended the Children's RE Conference at Blackburn Cathedral. The theme for the day was 'What is the message of the Knife Angel?' We spent the day with children from other schools from across the Diocese, taking part in 3 different workshops. The final workshop involved us actually going to see the sculpture. It was amazing and so big! If you haven't had chance to see the Knife Angel yet we would highly recommend you take the time to visit.
Lola and Ayo will be putting together a short presentation soon to tell the other pupils all about their day.
