 RE in Key Stage 1

Religious Education is learning about different faiths and finding out what drives people of faith to live the way they do. This helps me to understand the nature of religion and the beliefs in the world in which I live. In RE I am given the opportunity to explore my own beliefs, and put them into practice in my own life.

 

 RE in Key Stage 2

Religious Education is learning about different religious faiths and the impact that these have on the lives of believers, their communities and the wider world. In RE I am given the opportunity to explore my own beliefs. Through challenging questions about life and morality, I am able to reflect, develop spiritually and foster positive attitudes and values. I am able to investigate different religions to build an understanding, and respect of, diverse cultures and beliefs.

Breadth of Study Map

Below is a link to our breadth of study for Religious Education (RE).

The breadth of study map ensures that every child receives their full curriculum entitlement as they progress through the school.

We plan and deliver our curriculum on a two year cycle of learning (Cycle A & Cycle B).

Key Skills Progression Plan

Our curriculum begins in the Early Years Foundation Stage. As part of the process of developing the skills progression documents, we have met as a staff team and carefully considered the prerequisite skills required for our EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) children to be ready to access the National Curriculum at the beginning of Year 1. These prerequisite skills can be found by clicking on the link below.

Learning Links in the EYFS (Religious Education)

Below is a link to our Skills Progression Plan document for Religious Education.

At Great Finborough Church primary School, we place great emphasis on progressing the skills of our children in all areas of the curriculum, their learning and in life as they grow up and flourish.

Key skills and subject knowledge is built on lesson by lesson, week by week and year on year. Some key skills are specific to a given subject but many skills are also transferable.

By learning, developing, improving and mastering key-skills in a subject, we believe our children will be able to apply those skills to any topic and subject matter and transfer those skills to many aspects of their life in and out of school.

Curriculum Milestones and Assesssments

Below are the links to our Religious Education (RE) Milestones for Key-Stage 1, Lower Key-Stage 2 and Upper Key-Stage 2. These documents outline what we expect our children to achieve in Art at the end of each of the 3 key time periods in Cycle A and Cycle B of our Breadth of Study Maps.

Each area of the Curriculum Milestones links to the Art curriculum which develops the understanding of the children in key questions in different faiths relating to ‘Beliefs, Teachings & Sources’, ‘Practices and Ways of Life’, ‘Forms of Expression’, ‘Identity & Belonging’, ‘Meaning, Purpose & truth’ and ‘Values and Commitments’.

These areas of the curriculum repeat, adding to the skills and knowledge of the children, every year as the children progress through the curriculum.

Children achieve at a ‘Basic Level’, the ‘Expected Level’, or a ‘Deep Level’. Curriculum Milestones are used as our assessment and tracking tool in Religious Education (RE).

 RE Milestone 1 – Key Stage 1 – Cycle A
RE Milestone 1 – Key Stage 1 – Cycle B
RE Milestone 2 – Lower Key Stage 2 – Cycle A
RE Milestone 2 – Lower Key Stage 2 – Cycle B

Curriculum in Action

Christingle – Autumn 2021

The whole school had a Christingle celebration in December. Every child made their own Christingle in class and learned what each of the elements of the Christingle represents. When the Christingles were complete every class held a Christingle service.
