Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”

Honeypot Class (EYFS)


In Honeypot Class, RE is taught within our weekly 'topic' lessons and supports the children's learning through 'Understanding of the World'. The children learn about many different religions with specific links to the religious festivals happening throughout the year. We specifically focus on two religious stories in our topic of 'Festivals and Celebrations': 'Rama and Sita' and 'The Christmas Story'.


Our Reception children play the lead roles within our annual whole school Christmas Nativity which is performed in the local church. 


The school has very strong links with the local church and we regularly attend special whole school services in the church, led by the local Vicar.  The local chapel and church is used as a real-life backdrop to learning, helping us to see what we are learning first-hand.
