R.E Curriculum

Religious Education (R.E.) Curriculum Statement

 

We start learning about religion in the Early Years, exploring real life experiences, moving from the known and familiar to the unknown as the curriculum progresses. The children first learn to identify similarities and then differences in religion. Across the Key Stages, the six major religions are covered as the pupils make links between them, whilst being exposed to a range of cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds. At all times, children are respectful in their learning journey which is linked to our British Values, personal development and school values (Responsible, Determined and Successful). Our aim is to develop global citizens who can learn both about and from world religions, whilst respectfully discussing and sharing their personal views. We believe that RE both supports and strengthens our aims in every aspect of school life and recognise the importance of delivering a vast and enriching curriculum. Our caring ethos and the value which we place on the development of the whole child; spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and intellectually, is reflected in the RE curriculum.

Year 6 enjoyed learning about sacred and secular Christmas. They discussed the similarities and differences with our local Reverend, Edward Keene and guest speaker, Rob Perry.

 

 

Year 2 enjoyed their visit to St Hugh and St Johns church where they went on a Christmas Journey. They explored the story of Christmas through a range of activities and learned lots about the true meaning of Christmas and the Christmas story. 

 

Reception enjoyed a visit from Reverend Keene from St Nicholas' Church. He taught the children the story of the birth of Jesus and discussed ways in which Christians celebrate Christmas. The children learnt names such as Mary, Joseph and Jesus.

EYFS 

Within the EYFS, RE is developed through purposeful, play based experiences and will be represented throughout the indoor and outdoor provision. The learning will be based on pupil’s interests and current themes in their core text, while focusing on the expectations from the Early Years Framework. RE understanding can be developed through stories, songs, games, imaginative play, child-initiated learning, and structured teaching.
