Religious Education

RE is taught in three annual modules in years 1 - 6 by class teachers. 

Why is the teaching of RE important for primary schools?

RE gives our pupils valuable insights into the diverse beliefs and opinions held by people today and in the past. It helps with their personal development and supports an understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural questions that will surface again and again in their lives.

Much of the RE currciulum content is also important knowledge to allow pupils to access other areas of the curriculum, in particular, English. For example, in Year 5, pupils study the book Tom's Midnight Garden by Philipa Pearce. Without knowledge of bible stories including Adam and Eve, or Moses and the Burning Bush, this magnificent book cannot be fully appreciated or understood. RE gives pupils key morals and stories that will enable them to access a much wider curriculum.   

What is taught? 

Year 1

Year 1 pupils begin by exploring their own beliefs in the module - My Beliefs. They then take a look at special places for major religions. Finally, pupils study bible stories: creation, Noah's ark and Babel

Year 2

In year 2, pupils learn about the story of Christmas. They are also taught about significant bible stories such as Adam and Eve, The Ten Commandments and The Good Samaritan. Their final module of learning is a look at different religious festivals from around the globe including Eid, Sukkot and Diwali. 

Year 3

Year 3's curriculum focusses on the teachings of Islam. Special places of worship are also studied, followed by the bible story of Abraham. 

Year 4

Year 4 study the life and teachings of Jesus. They also take an in-depth look at the story of Easter. Their final module involves studying the traditions and customs of Hinduism. 

Year 5 

In year 5, pupils study worship and prayer of the major world religions. They also study Judaism and finally, the bible story of Moses.  

Year 6

Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to study the life and teachings of St. Paul. They also look at the bible story: The Road to Damascus. Their final module is to explore the traditions and customs of Buddhism.
