RE

Religious Education

 

We believe that RE should be taught through an enquiry based model which increases children’s critical thinking skills, their motivation to learn and improves their knowledge and understanding of other beliefs and religions. This approach ensures that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief.

 

Our school follows the Discovery RE Scheme. Through the use of this, SMSC is greatly encouraged and provides opportunities in each enquiry question. It allows children to reflect on their spiritual, moral, social and cultural views.It exposes children to other cultures and beliefs and provides them with an opportunity to recognise the difference between right and wrong.It also provides an understanding and appreciation of the wide range of cultural influences that have shaped their own community.Thus, enabling children to explore and understand cultural diversity.

 

This scheme is an enquiry based approach consisting of 4 key steps.

 

 

Step 1- Engagement Stage

The key enquiry question is explored. Children suggest their thoughts/ beliefs/ experiences relating to the enquiry question.

Step 2- Investigation Stage

During this stage children are guided through the enquiry question and learn about the relevant subject knowledge.

Step 3- Evaluation Stage

At this stage children draw together conclusions about the enquiry question.

Step 4 – Expression Stage

Children are taken back to stage 1 and asked to reflect on what they learnt from they own starting points.
