Intent, Implementation and Impact

As part of our Inspiration topic in RE, Year 5 have been learning about some of the prominent figures of the Civil Rights Movement. After listening to some inspirational songs, including Nelson Mandela by The Specials, we thought we'd work in groups and write some songs of our own about Rosa Parks.

Year 1 have been learning about a Bulgarian traditional holiday called Baba Marta. The children made red and white Martenitsa. The red is a symbol of strength, purity and happiness. The white is a symbol of health.

In RE year 2 have been learning all about Palm Sunday. We made these fantastic palm trees and palm leaves to represent this special time at Easter.

Year 2 have been looking at the symbols and their meanings in different religions. The children then thought about what symbols represents them and drew a picture of them.
