Religious Education

In Religious Education (R.E.), we teach children about a range of religions around the world, comparing and contrasting beliefs and practices.

Each R.E. unit looks at a particular theme, such as "festivals", and studies this in at least two religions (e.g. Christianity and Sikhism).  Each half-term, we have a particular religion which is the focus of learning for all year groups.

The aim of R.E. is to give children knowledge and skills in the subject and also to teach them to be tolerant of, and respectful to, the different people in their community and wider society.  Through R.E., they should learn to accept difference and not to be scared by things they do not understand.  They should also have time to reflect on their own feelings and beliefs.

The major world religions covered in R.E. are:
  • Christianity
  • Islam
  • Hinduism
  • Judiasm
  • Sikhism
  • Buddhism
We cover themes such as:
  • Sharing
  • People in Stories
  • Nobody's Fault
  • Special Books
  • Living like a Saint
  • A Fair World
  • Remembrance
  • Words of Wisdom
