‘Faith is to believe what you do not see, the reward of this faith is to see what you believe’
The road map below is to show the RE curriculum as it progresses through the school from Reception to Year 6.
As a Church of England Academy, RE has an added importance in all aspects of our school’s daily life. We aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of distinctly Christian belief and practice.
- RE teaching and learning is a very important part of the curriculum at our school. In EYFS and KS1, children begin their RE journey by understanding what it means to belong and be part of a community. They retell and explore the meanings of some religious and moral stories. They listen to stories from the bible and they they learn the significance they have on Christians. Using this knowledge, children will make connections between key parts of the bible and their own experiences in the world. Children will begin to understand that Christianity is a way of living across the world, and they explore core key theological concepts. Using the Awareness, Mystery Value agreed syllabus and Understanding Christianity , children become secure in their knowledge of Christianity and they develop an understanding of other faiths including Hinduism, Judaism & Islam and other non-religious views (Humanism).
- In KS2 , children will build upon this knowledge and understanding of Christianity as a world faith and will become familiar with a wider range of biblical texts. Children develop their ability to critically reflect upon their learning and are encouraged to ask probing questions and delve even deeper. Children understand how biblical texts guide and impact the lives of Christians, while understanding further theological concepts, the world and human experience. Using the Awareness , Mystery , Value agreed syllabus and Understanding Christianity, children build on their secure knowledge and understanding of other faiths (Hinduism, Judaism & Islam) and non-religious views.
