At Weddington we use the Coventry and Warwickshire agreed syllabus for Religious Education.
The principal aim of RE is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own. We aim to enable the children to develop their ideas and identities.
We cover all the main religions and focus in detail on Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Humanism. All of the major religious festivals are taught through assemblies or through the units of work.
We make trips to the church, for example year 1 will make Christingles and take part in a Christingle service at our local church. We also have visitors from different faiths to share their beliefs with the children. Reception children have a week celebrating Diwali and have a visitor to make Mendhi patterns with them.
Each unit of work starts by posing a question to the children, for example; what do religions say to us when life gets hard? Then we explore these questions through the different religions ideas and beliefs.
