Year 1 Religious Education

Religious Education is a big part of our curriculum and school day and gives us the chance to think about and reflect on the world around us. Each morning we share Collective Worship together using a story from the world or prayer as our focus of discussion and reflection. 

We explore Religion through a variety of ways using stories, drama and music to develop our understanding and knowledge.


Tuesday 2nd May 2017


Over our last few RE lessons we have been thinking all about the Easter story and how Jesus died on the cross before resurrecting on Easter Sunday. We have talked all about how this is a happy time of the year and a time to celebrate with our friends and families. Today we had our very own Easter celebration where we made buns, tried hot cross buns and created lots of Easter Art. We certainly enjoyed celebrating Easter together.

Palm Sunday

Today we listened to the story of Palm Sunday, learning how Jesus went to Jerusalem with his disciples to celebrate Passover. During our lesson, we created our very own palm leaves and listened carefully to the story. Once we were confident with the story we had great fun acting it out. We took turns to be Jesus and his disciples entering Jerusalem, whilst the crowds gathered and shouted ‘Hossana’. Here are some pictures of us with our leaves welcoming Jesus and his disciples.

Pancake Day

Today we learnt all about Shrove Tuesday which is also known as Pancake Day. We know that it is the day before Ash Wednesday when Lent begins and was traditionally a day of fun and feasting before the fasting required during the 40 days of Lent. We had lots of fun talking about our favourite pancake toppings, designing our very own pancakes and even eating some. A fun filled pancake afternoon was had by all!

Families and Celebrations

This half term were are learning all about Families and Celebrations. We have had the opportunity to discuss the importance of families and learn about different ones we belong to. It has been lovely hearing all about what makes our families special and unique. We all know that we belong to the Church's Family and that God is our Father in Heaven, making us all part of one big special family. 


We are also having the opportunity to explore celebrations of the Church and have had great fun acting out some of these. We have discussed Baptisms and Wedding, exploring the meaning and importance of them. Have a look at some photos of our own church celebrations. 





Today we listened to the story of The Presentation of Jesus at the Temple. We know that Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple as they wanted to thank God for giving them such a special baby. When then got to the temple an old man called Simeon was there and he was very happy to see the baby Jesus as he knew that God had kept his promise and sent a new king to watch over everyone. There was also an old lady called Anna who was very well known in the temple. As soon as she saw the baby Jesus she also knew that he was very special and began telling everyone immediately.  We know that Candlemas is celebrated in Church on the 2nd of February.
