Retelling Bible stories

During our RE day, we read and explored the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, which is a story all about staying true to your faith.

We retold the story in different ways: drama; using Bible Buddies on the iPad; creating a children’s book; and developing a real puppet show for the children in FS2 and year 2.

Here are the two groups acting out their story, while beneath you can see Molly, Cian, Emil and Phillip’s work on Bible Buddies.

RE Day

Today, 21st of June we will be having an RE day. RE is all about Jesus and God and we learn how to be a good Catholic.

We have to dress up as someone or something from the Old Testament from the Bible. Some people are coming in onesies, to be animals from Noah’s Ark. Maybe someone could be Noah or maybe Joseph!

The teachers are dressing up as lots of things, Mr Connor said ‘He’s Trying To Get As Many Animals On Him As He Can’. So I’m quite exited to see that!

Our school prayer.

This is our school, let peace dwell here.

Let  each room be full of contemption.

Love of life, love of one another


So that’s what we’re doing today, What About You?


God has given me the gift of life, therefore I will not waste it. I will give it purpose, for God has not created me for nothing.I have purpose. I have trust in God. I will nurture my life, my family and my faith, never straing from God’s love.I have my mission, I will fight for  justice. I know that whatever happens is for a reason, for God does nothing in vain.I will fulfil my mission, my purpose and my life. For God, I will do anything.

Our prayer

God has not created me for nothing

I have my mission

He makes me strong when I am weak,

He gives me trust everyday,

When I am alone he comforts me,

He gives me joy when I  am sad,

He gives me hope

By Poppy and Joe.

Our prayer

God has called me I know because I can hear it in my heart. I have my mission. He has not created me for for nothing, I pray for your love, confidence and I pray for the job of my dreams and to have strength.

The prayer by Sneha and Phillip

The prayer

God is my hope.He is calling me inside.He made me to do my duty.

I have my mission… He has not created me for nothing.

My sickness and our sorrow wont help him but it will serve him.

He knows what’s best for me and he knows that He’s my destiny.

By Sneha and Phillip          What do you think?


Finally my time has come.

It is time to start my mission.

God didn’t create me for nothing.

I will complete this mission.

God is my father and has sent me this mission.

I will obey him.

I will do my best and believe in myself.
