Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”

Rooks Nest Class (KS2)

Religious Studies in Lower Key Stage 2

In Rooks Nest Class, we learn about the following Religions:

-          Christianity

-          Judaism

-          Sikhism

-          Hinduism

RE topics are linked to different religious festivals throughout year and children take part in a whole school nativity performance at Christmas.  Children learn about different religions through practical activities, stories and drama.  Wherever possible, cross-curricular links are made; more specifically with art, music, history, PSHE and english.


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.
