Our Faith in Reception
The children are able to access our prayer and reflection area at any point during the school day. This area is quiet with books and prayers in for them to look at if they wish to do so or they can just sit and be. We deliver class worship in our reflection area and we enjoy taking part in whole school worships. We are exploring our Christian value of love.
'Love one another as I have loved you.'
John 13: 34-35
World Faith Week
Reception enjoyed learning about Islam as part of our World Faith focus in school. We learnt lots about this faith and how people who follow this faith are called Muslims and they pray to one God, who in Arabic is known as Allah. We learnt about the five pillars which are the core beliefs and practices of Islam.
We also looked at how Muslims pray and how they use a prayer mat to pray to their God at different times in the day and how we as Christians know that we can pray to God whenever and wherever we are as he is always listening to us.
Reception enjoyed retelling the story of the birth of Jesus. Each child had an important role, to tell the story as told from the bible.
Reception explored fruits from Africa as part of Harvest. The children sang prayers to God to thank him for the fruits at Harvest time. Africa is linked to the Reception Curriculum Passport.
