Religious Education

'Let Your Light Shine'

Matthew 5:16

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.

In class 4, we have been learning about the Easter story as part of Holy Week in school. Here are some great examples of some of the children's retell writing of the last supper.  

Thank you God!

Harvest in a special place. Thanking God for this year's Harvest.

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.

Classes 4,5 and 6 had a wonderful time visiting St Peter's Church. We had to spot the pulpit, lectern, font and other features. Thank you Father Peter.

Year 6 have investigated the Passover meal which Jesus ate with his disciples during the Last Supper. We have re-enacted the Passover to understand its importance for the Jewish people and its influence on the Christian Eucharist. We have explored their differences and similarities and were fascinated by the idea that this meal was also important to Jesus. He, too, would have understood the symbolic meaning of the foods and why they are tasted. 

Easter Garden 2016. Every class has worked hard to produce something for the Easter garden! Well done everyone!

Class 8 have been looking at the The Last Supper poster. We have used our detective skills to identify lots of things.

Class 9 have been learning about the Jewish Passover. To enhance our learning, we visited the Jewish museum in Manchester. We learnt a great deal about the Jewish Faith and the importance of the Passover.

Class 9 have been learning about the Eucharist. They visited St Peter's Church to find out more. Huge thanks to Father Alan for explaining the Eucharist service and for showing us the artefacts.

Class 4 created a piece of artwork using watercolours to represent the life of Jesus.  They were inspired by the work of Norman Adams and his painting Christ's entry into Jerusalem which we have in school.

Class 11 Faith Trail we visited Blackburn Cathedral and a Mosque! We had a great day!

Class 7 and 8 have been thinking about how they can change the world!

To help Classes 7 and 8 with their Harvest enterprise, Class11 have made toffee apples to raise money for the Bishop's Harvest Appeal. We harvested the school's apples then dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. We earned £16.00. This will help children in Malawi.

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.
