Religious Education


Autumn Term

We have all been very busy this term in our RE lessons, and have studied many different things.

In FS2 we have been learning all about Diwali, and because of the time of the year, Harvest.

As we move closer to Christmas we will look at the story of the birth of Jesus.

In Year 1 and 2 we have looked closely at the themes around Harvest and we too will look at the Christmas story.

Years 3 and 4 have looked at the ‘Five Pillars of Islam’ and Years 5 and 6 have studied ‘Hajj and Other Sacred Journeys’. To inspire our learning we were lucky enough to be visited by Yesmeim. We all did workshops with her and were able to learn much more about Muslim culture. Years 3,4,5 and 6 will now focus on building on their knowledge of The Christmas Story.

 We have celebrated another fantastic Harvest Festival at Alverton. Wonderful poems and amazing singing! The best part however, was the quantity of produce donated. Mrs. Fisher has collected this and it is all going to support the Northallerton Food Bank.

A huge thank you to all who came to celebrate with us,but more importantly, those who donated.


In the lead up to Christmas, as part of our RE topic, we were invited to be part of a Christingle service at the Methodist church. Not only were we thrilled to be part, of it we devised it ourselves. Year 1 performed poems, Year 2 performed a song, as did Year 3. Year 4 did a lovely reading, Year 5 performed the traditional Christmas story, but as a modern rap and Year 6 wrote and performed a ‘five minute theatre’ on a modern Christmas tale. Throughout it all, bible readings were read by the children. At the end we lit our Christingles and sang the beautiful Christmas carol ‘Away in a Manger’. It certainly prepared us for the festivities to come.


Year 5 and Year 6 were lucky enough to have The Old Testament explained through a series of tales and signs by the charismatic ‘Rev. Trev.’. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning and acting the main points from The Old Testament and hopefully ‘Rev. Trev.’ will return later in the year to teach us about The New Testament.
