'Let Your Light Shine'
Welcome to RE at St Peter's CE Primary School
At St Peter's our strong and distinctive Christian ethos is rooted in the life of our school and through our motto to love, challenge and inspire one another.
Religious Education is planned and taught from the scheme of work provided by the Blackburn Board of Education and supplemented by Understanding Christianity. Through this work, we provide opportunities for our children to develop academically and spiritually. The content of our syllabus enables children to go on a quest of discovery to learn more about themselves, their relationship with others, their relationship with the world around them and their relationship with God.
Our Vision and Values
We believe that our children can shine and grow in confidence with God’s love through our challenging and values centred curriculum; to love one another as Jesus loved us, to challenge each other and ourselves and be inspired by the love of God to love learning as disciples of Jesus.
Please find below our planning cycle for EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Within these units staff have the opportunity to explore the supplementary units of their choice.
At St Peter’s CE Primary School we have six Christian Values which are at the heart of school life.
These are: Love, Trust, Respect, Compassion, Friendship and Peace.
'Let all that you do be done in love.' 1 Corinthians 16:14
'My God is my strength in whom I trust.' Psalm 18:2
'Do to others are you would have them do to you.' Matthew 7:12
'Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.' - Colossians 3:12
'Encourage one another and build each other up.' Thessalonians 5:11
'Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.' Colossians 3:15

CELEBRATION OF GOD'S LOVE FOR ALL
Today, the whole school have been involved in activities with our church. The Infants have enjoyed Bible stories and activities whilst KS2 all visited the church. We wrote prayers, discussed 'The Prodigal Son' and sang our hearts out in celebration.
Thanks to all the leaders at church who made it a fantastic experience for the children.
The Baptism of Diana Faith.
Classes 3, 4 and 5 went to church and Father Peter baptised Diana Faith. We learnt that when you are baptised you become part of the church family. We all had a fantastic time, thank you Father Peter!
Class 10 have celebrated the Passover Meal as part of our Easter events. We have learnt about the significance of all the ingredients of the Seder plate; bitter herbs to represent the bitter, hard life of the Israelites, the lamb shankbone to represent God's arm of protection, an egg and spring greens to symbolise new life, Charoset to taste the sweet things in life and salted water to remember the tears of the slaves during the time before Moses.
Class 8 had a wonderful opportunity to visit two places of worship as part of their RE work this term! They visited a Sikh Gurdwara and Buddhist Temple in Preston !
A fantastic day!
