"Working together to be our best"
As a Federation, we have designed our RE curriculum around three key aims of study which are:
Making sense of beliefs,
Understanding the impact.
Within these aims we build in the required coverage of religions and world views, which also includes non-religious views.
We want our children:
to know that R.E stands for Religious Education.
to be able to hold informed conversations about belief and the world in which we live.
to develop a broad and balanced understanding of religions and worldviews and develop critical thinking skills.
We have a two-year rolling programme for RE which sets out our curriculum coverage of skills and knowledge. We use a combination of the Locally Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity as the material for teaching R.E.
- We check children’s learning by asking key questions and by using regular quizzes at the beginning and end of lessons.
- We ask pupils to record their thinking as pupil voice activities.
- We use knowledge organisers to help children to remember what they have learnt.
- Our pupils are able to hold informed conversations about belief and world religions.
