Our Learning‎ > ‎


RE is taught once a week across the school. We visit our local church, Deepcar St John's at Christmas for our Junior Carol Service and at Harvest time.  At our Harvest service we bring food collected at school, kindly donated beforehand by parents and families of our children. All the food collected is donated to the Stocksbridge Food Bank which is run by The Hub Church on the High Street. 

Collective worship takes place at St John's every day except Fridays when it is our special 'Sparkle and Shine' and Birthday assembly.  A regular visitor is Reverend Hilda Issacson, who joins us with her friends from church to act out a story from The Children's Bible in their Open the Book assemblies. 


Easter is a major date in the Christian calendar and is celebrated in many ways across the school. The Easter story is our main study in our RE lessons and assemblies during the Easter period. The children join Mrs Cordle for ‘The Last Supper’, taking place in one of our Collective Worships in the pictures below. Children learn all about Maundy Thursday and its relevance to the Easter Story. 


Commemorating Easter Sunday with Palm Branches dates back to Early Christian Churches. Across the school children learn how this relates to the Easter Story and make their own Palm crosses to take home.
