Pupil Voice - Religious Education


" I love doing RE, best subject ever. I like it because the school takes it as very important and this is where our life comes from." Luiza y5

" If we didn't do RE we wouldn't know about God, how to love each other." Sofie Y5

" We learnt that Jesse is the father of King David, an ancestor of Jesus."  James and Charlie Y3

" We did about the Advent wreath, it has an everlasting circle of everlasting life.... we learnt the song ' When is he coming." James and Charlie Y3

" We learnt about Birthdays, we set the table, we had food, cake, presents and drinks. We played games like pass the parcel. We were getting ready for  Jesus' birthday. In our crib we had baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, stars, an angel, three kings and shepherds."

Nadia and Isla YR

" When baptised you wear white and special prayer water is poured over your head and they say, " I baptise you in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen." Nadia and Isla YR


Pupil Voice - Praise and Worship

" This is my life and I can rule it as long as I follow God's rules, it helps me to feel free... not so formal but that's OK." Luiza Y5

" Makes me feel closer to God, singing loudly. Makes me want to be a good person." Sofie Y5




Pupil Voice- Collective Worship

"Two people from the class are chosen for collective worship. They stay in at lunchtime and prepare it.  Me and Nina did about Noah and Layla did a nice prayer." James and Charlie


" You can sign up to do collective worship if you would like to do it. Our teacher gives us cards to help us. We use a PowerPoint. We did about Catherine Laboure and the miraculous medal and we did about the Rosary." Christopher and Lily- Anna Y6


"Two people organise it, the cards are under the board- gather, mission, prayer and readings. We use the ideas on the list. I did the Rosary with Kasey." Kiera and Zofia Y4


" We did an assembly on faith filled and hopeful- hopeful to get more faith, faith gets stronger and fills you up. Gandi said " if you have a few drops in the ocean, that doesn't mean everything is dirty." Kiera and Zofia Y4

Pupil Voice- Meditation

" I like Meditation " Nadia YR

" After lunch we meditate to calm ourselves down, to have some time with God." Luiza Y5

" Maranatha  means 'Come Lord Jesus come.' Jacob Y2

" We meditate after lunch, we put our heads on the table, we say 'maranatha- Come Lord Jesus ' meditation relaxes you, helps you prepare for our lesson and gives us a time to be with Jesus." Lily- Anna and Christopher Y6

" After playtime we sit down, cross our legs, we hear the music, we say maranatha- come Lord Jesus come. We hear the dings and when it does three we have to be super quiet for one minute." Isla and Nadia  YR


Pupil Voice (School Council)


Ben (Year 5), "We learn about our own religion and other religions, such as Judasim and Islam. We went to the Synagogue and a Jewish lady taught us about all the symbols and the features of a synagogue."

Keira, "A muslim artist visited our school and we learnt about all the words used for God (Allah). We used bamboo pens and ink to make our own artwork." 

As part of Year 4’s topic, Community and the Funeral Mass focus, they designed and wrote prayer cards and gave them to Father Micheal to support people in need.
