Religious Education

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

Why is the teaching of RE important for Cooks Spinney's pupils?

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.

What is taught? 

Year 1

Year 1 pupils begin by exploring the religion of Christianity in the lead up to Christmas. They then go on to learn about Hanukkah in Judaism and meditation in Buddhism.

Year 2

In year 2, pupils begin by exploring the religion of Islam. They then go on to learn about five Ks in Sikhism and finally they go on to learn about the story of Rama and Sita in Hinduism.

Year 3

Year 3 pupils extend their learning from KS1 by understanding the role of the twelve disciples in Christianity. They then go on to understand the importance of the Sedar plate in Judaism and in Buddhism they discover the festival of Wesak.

Year 4

In year 4, pupils extend their learning from KS1 by understanding the significance of the five pillars in Islam. They then go on to learn about the ten gurus in Sikhism and finally they go on to learn about Diwali in Hinduism.

Year 5 

In year 5, pupils start to consolidate their learning of RE and explore how Forgiveness and then Peace are viewed across the six major religions. They then go on to improve their oracy skills in a module which promotes Theological Debate.

Year 6

In year 6, pupils are encouraged to deepen their understanding of RE by comparing Religious Expression and non-faith perspectives in the module Humanism. They then go on to improve their oracy skills in a Theological Debate module which combines their prior learning.
