Religion in our school

We worked in pairs to produce a leaflet in our RE lessons in Class 9. Inside, we have outlined the different parts of the wedding ceremony and given a short explanation of what happens. 

Our second CARITAS afternoon of the year in Class 9 involved us thinking about how we can become good stewards of God’s earth, our common home. More importantly, we began to think about why this is important and gathered a variety of actions that we can begin to take. 

In our Caritas assembly this month we celebrated all we had learned in our Religion lessons.  Year 3 pupils were learning all about Stewardship, how all things are connected.  They learned how to look after God’s world and how to live in harmony with our world.  Year 4 pupils also studied Stewardship and the environment.  They learned about how we must share God’s precious resource of water and about pollution in our local area with a focus on looking after the air we breathe.  Year 5 pupils were learning all about being stewards of the earth and Year 6 pupils were learning about seeing God in creation and writing reflections and prayers to praise God. 

All our Year 6 children are learning about commitment and vocations in our religion lessons.  The children met with Father Dever who told the children all about his journey in becoming a priest.  Father Dever explained to the children all about his calling, his education and his ordination and his journey to St Richard’s Church.  The children asked Father Dever questions about his role as our Parish Priest and Head of Governors of our school and learned a great deal about his life in our Parish.  Thank you Father Dever. 

Caritas in Action is a cross-curricular RE scheme of work with the PSHE/Citizenship curriculum to help in the delivery of the Social Teaching of the Catholic Church which is based on our understanding of human life and dignity as people made in the image and likeness of God.  Click here to read all about Caritas Caritas in Action

Throughout October, the GIFT Team have been leading a daily prayer group for children across the whole school to celebrate the Month of the Holy Rosary. Each day, we discussed the Mysteries of the Rosary and their significance. Each member of the GIFT Team took it in turns to lead a decade of the Rosary each lunchtime. Lots of children gave up time in their lunch to attend the group, with many children attending the session everyday – thank you!
