RE learning in action

St. Edmundsbury Cathedral and Abbey gardens trip.


Years 5 and 6 visited St. Edmundsbury Cathedral to enhance our RE learning about pilgrims. We learnt about the story of St. Edmund and why many Christians pilgrimage to his tomb. We explored the Abbey ruins and were amazed at how huge the Abbey church would have been. 



Key Stage One Visit to St Mary’s Church

Year 2 were inspired in the Prayer Room to write their own prayers. They reflected on our school values and wrote beautiful prayers which they use in the class collective worship.

Year 3 thought about how the cross is so important to Christians as it is a symbol of love and sacrifice. We also made our own wooden crosses.

Year 1 acted out the story of 'The First Disciples' today in RE. We had a think about why they trusted and followed Jesus.

Year 3 have been learning about why Hindus want to collect good karma

Each class learnt about Epiphany and participated in a variety of activities such as Art and English. After a whole school collective worship where we learnt about Epiphany traditions in France, we paraded around the school grounds following the star to find Jesus. 

When Ducklings class visited the Prayer Room with their Three Kings' Day artwork, a child said, " I feel so calm in here. I feel the presence of Jesus all around me." 

Epiphany - Year 6 looked at the kings visit Baby Jesus. They wrote diary entries and created art work to show their journey following the star.

Year 1 have been learning all about the birth of Jesus in our RE lessons. We have discussed that Mary and Joseph were given a special job to have this baby sent from God. We have discussed that Jesus is a saviour and how we know this through other bible stories we know. The children have had fun creating the Nativity scene, drawing it and performing it! 

Year 5 have been learning about the Gospels in RE. They have read some of the stories from the Gospels and identified the good news within them. Each group created a freeze frame to represent the good news. Can you work out which Gospel story each of the freeze frames below are showing?

Year 1 and 2 are looking at how Jewish people prayer new worship God this half term.

We made our own Sukkah's in house teams using lots of different resource we could find.



Christians celebrate a special day called Pentecost 50 days after Easter. It was on the day of Pentecost that God sent his Holy Spirit to the church. The Bible tells us that the apostles were all gathered together in one place when suddenly there was a sound like a mighty, rushing wind. They saw what looked like tongues of fire that came to rest on each of them and all of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.

To celebrate Pentecost, the children and staff dressed in something red, orange, yellow or something bright and colourful and took part in a variety of activities throughout the afternoon. Parents were also invited to come and join their children in class. 

At the end of the day, we held a whole school collective worship to share the activities and celebrations that had happened in each class. It was wonderful to see such a variety of activities ranging from drama and poetry to art and music.



Our Worship team invited all children to make, decorate or colour a cross to enter into this year's Easter competition. The crosses could be made of anything and be of any size. Children were encouraged to be creative and remember what Easter is really about. 


After the competition, every cross entered will be taken to St.Peter's and St.Mary's Church in Stowmarket where they will be displayed around the church for visitors to see as part of their Cross Festival. The festival will be open to the public 1st-15th April at the church.


As you can see from the photographs below, we had lots of amazing crosses which we thoroughly enjoyed judging. The high standard of the entries definitely made it difficult for winners to be selected. Congratulations to the winners who each received a small wooden cross and an Easter egg.

Epiphany 2023


On 6th January, the whole school paraded to St Mary's Church following the star and three kings. On arrival at the church, we found Baby Jesus and sang hymns. We also witnessed Rev. Jenkins chalking the door. Once we were all back at school, we used the blessed chalk from Rev. Jenkins to chalk our classroom doors too.

Visit to St. Mary's Church - Autumn 2022


Years 5 and 6 visited St Mary’s Church in Combs to find out what evidence there is in the church that shows:

a) Jesus is important to Christians.

b) Christians believe Jesus is God incarnate / the Son of God.

c) Christians worship Jesus as God.

d) Christians value the belief that God became one of us, human.


Below, are some photographs of us exploring the church and finding lots of evidence.
