Our Religious Education Curriculum

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." Y5

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

” I enjoy RE because we do lots of fun things and learn about God and the bible. “ Y4
“ I like it when we do art pieces, it inspires me to believe in Jesus.” Y4

 ”RE is like when you go to church, it makes me happy.” Y4

” In RE we learn about Christ and how he fulfilled his mission.” Y6

” In RE we talk about God and Jesus and remember them in our hearts.” Y2

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

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


" 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."  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."  Y5

" Makes me feel closer to God, singing loudly. Makes me want to be a good person." 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." Y3


" 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."   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."  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."  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."

Making an Easter Garden in Reception

Reception Children make streamers to share the good news that Jesus is alive!

As part of our ‘Community’ topic, Year 4 designed their own Prayer Cards and gave them to Father Micheal to comfort parishioners when they lose loved ones. After the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, the Prayer Cards were sent to Christians to support them. BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester interviewed the children and it was aired on Sunday 5th May during the Breakfast Show.

Inspired by the Passion play by Y5 the Reception children choose to make a cross
