In our school we use Understanding Chrisitanity, together with the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. The Derbyshire syllabus is currently under review, and we are excited to be able to bring this resource to our RE teaching during the Summer term 2020. Until that point, we continue to follow the scheme of work set out below.

Our Christingle service was held in our church and the Venerable Carol Coslett travelled from Chesterfield to lead our service. We learned all about the origins of Christingle from Year 2/3 and we sang a well known hymn with words especially for the occasion.
The Children have also made their own Christingles in school to be taken home and lit with their grown-ups. Thank you to everyone for making it such a lovely service.

We have been finding out about the festival of Diwali in school.
We started with a worship where we entered through a path of lights, we heard the story of Rama and Sita and we looked at some traditional clothes (Mrs Redfearn even wore a sari) and we finished with some Bollywood dancing!
We continued to look at the festival in class. Here are some of the beautiful Rangoli patterns Year 5/6 created on our playground.
