RE

At Ellwood Community Primary School we believe that high quality RE lessons contribute to the personal development of pupils. RE is not simply about gaining knowledge and understanding about religions and beliefs. It makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, as well as important opportunities for exploring British Values.  Children learn to make sense of beliefs, understand the impact of these beliefs and make connections between beliefs.

Visit to Coalway Methodist Chapel
 
Chestnut and Beech had a lovely time visiting Rev Michelle at Coalway Methodist Chapel. It was great to be able to look at the features of the building. We learnt about the key characters in the nativity. We were very lucky as Rev Michelle also gave each child a nativity Christmas tree decoration. Thank you Rev Michelle.
As part of our RE unit this term Beech class have been learning about promises we make at special ceremonies in different religions. Rev Michelle came to show us some items used during Baptisms.
Sycamore
 
Sycamore have been learning about baptism. They have looked at what baptism is, the baptism of Jesus by exploring scripture (Matthew 3:13-17) and looked at what happens in a baptism service. 
Sycamore
 
Sycamore have been learning about Hinduism. They have explored the story of Rama and Sita and explored how Hindus celebrate Diwali. They made their own lamps and lit sparklers!
Children have been acting out Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We looked at scripture and thought about the emotions on these different days and why. 
Harvest
 
We have all been celebrating harvest in school, we were very sad that families couldn't join us. Here you can see some of the things we have been doing.
 
Thank you so much for all the kind donations !!
