"To be the best that we can be"


Learning about Islam with Rehana

We had a visit from our faith friend, Rehana. She came to talk to us about her Islamic faith. We loved hearing about Rehana’s beliefs and learning about how she worships. Rehana brought some special clothes for us to try on and she showed us how Muslim people pray.

Hinduism in Year 3

We had a wonderful time learning about Hinduism with Neetal. She taught us a traditional Hindu dance.
In classes, we learned about Raksha Bandhan. This is a popular Hindu festival where sisters give their brothers a Raki to protect them. Then, we made our own Raki and talked about why we would give it to our brothers.

Harvest Festival

To celebrate harvest, we brought in lots of tins and packets of food. These are being donated to our local food bank. They will then be distributed to families in the local area who need a little helping hand.  

KS2 - Today we had a guest come to speak to us about Judaism

At the beginning of December class 4 put on a fantastic class assembly all about Advent. We learnt that Advent isn’t all about the chocolates we eat in our calendars but also about celebrating Christmas as a Christian. Class 4 taught us all about the Christingle, a celebration that happens in churches around Christmas time. Each piece of the Christingle holds special symbolism to help children understand the importance of Jesus and the Gospel, and its relevance at Christmas time.

  • The orange represents the world
  • The red ribbon symbolises the love and blood of Christ
  • The sweets and dried fruit represent all of God’s creations
  • The lit candle represents Jesus’s light in the world, bringing hope to people living in darkness

Why not have a go at making your own Christingle at home?

A big thank you to class 4 from all the school, well done!
