Implementation of our Religious Education Curriculum
- Our RE Curriculum is built around the Bible timeline and follows the Liverpool Blackburn Diocese Scheme that enables every child to flourish.
- Discrete RE lessons take place.
- Key attitudes are encouraged throughout learning. All learning is built around the 5Ps: pace, productivity, presentation, perseverance and progress.
- Critical thinking and problem solving are essential to learning across our curriculum. Lessons are planned in such a way that children can apply their knowledge in critical thinking/problem solving contexts.
- Christian values and the Bible are linked with other subjects in the curriculum.
- Opportunities to learn about other major religions; their impact on culture and politics, art and history and on the lives of their believers.
- Think theologically and explore ultimate questions.
- Reflect critically on the truth claims of Christian belief.
- Analyse and explain the varied nature and traditions of the Christian community.
- A wide range of artefacts have been purchased to support learning. These are used regularly in RE lessons to develop skills.
- Key skills such as evaluation, reflection and investigation are developed across our RE curriculum.
- Skills of listening and willingness to learn from others, even when others’ views are different from their own are developed through reflection times.
- RE floor books provide opportunities to record thoughts, ideas and reflections.
- World Faith days provide opportunities for children to focus on other world faiths through hands on experiences and engaging in workshops with visitors.
- Out of class activities support biblical knowledge e.g., BAFTA Bible, Bible Tales.
- Exploring and experiencing prayer and worship from a variety of Christian traditions.
- Recognising and encouraging the use of personal and group gifts and talents by leading collective worship e.g. Worship Warriors.
