Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care


Throughout their time at Hatherleigh, children have the opportunity to learn about and become familiar with the main World religions. We promote respect and understanding towards all beliefs, including those with no religious beliefs. We encourage children to think about the similarities as well as the differences, for example, by exploring the ways of celebrating important events.

Easter activities in Chestnuts.

We have been learning about the Creation Story. We painted pictures of some of the amazing things that God has created.

For Easter in Chestnuts we made an Easter Garden and had an egg hunt!

A Rakhi bracelet is used in a Hindu celebration. It is given to a brother from their sister, as a sign of their love for one another. In Chestnuts we made our own.

Chestnuts have been learning about how in Christianity and Judaism, God believes everybody is special.

Chestnuts, Hawthorns and Willows performed their play 'A Magical Christmas Journey', brilliantly.

Willows learnt about Advent and created their own wreaths.

The whole school gathered in the church for our Harvest festival.

Chestnuts have been learning about Diwali by drawing rangoli patterns with chalk.
