RE in our school
The teaching of Religious Education (RE) is an important part of our curriculum. We believe that RE should get children thinking about the big questions in life and help them to begin to form and express their own beliefs, as well as understand and appreciate other's beliefs. We support children to understand and respect different opinions and beliefs and to appreciate diversity. We encourage children to develop: respect, appreciation and wonder, self-awareness and open-mindedness.
We use the Emmanuel Project, provided by the Diocese, to provide a framework for the lessons. As a Church school, two thirds of our RE lessons are focused on Christianity.
We often supplement our RE learning with RE mornings or a whole RE day where we focus on a particular festival, topic or faith.
Previously, we have learnt about Christmas, Easter, Harvest, Passover, The Trinity and Eucharist.
We have also spent time learning about Kagera in Tanzania and the church and school that the Diocese of St Edmundsbury is linked to.
This half term, we are thinking about changes and learning about how God guides us through changes. There can be lots of changes over Summer, particularly for our wonderful year 6 children who will be leaving us and moving on.
We will be learning about how God helps us with any changes, and that He will give us peace. We will be spending time chatting to God in prayer and asking for His help. We will be praying for our year 6s too.
The Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you.
