The KS1/2 RE curriculum has been developed so that every primary pupil in the Trust studies the same religion at the same time. Each child will study each religion twice in their primary career.
Progress is ensured by focussing on a different enquiry in each year:
|1||Which festivals are important?|
|2||How and why do _______ celebrate festivals? (extending and focusing on the ‘why’ from year 1)|
|3||How do _________ celebrate life events? (birth, weddings, coming of age, death).|
|4||What do ________ believe and how is it show through stories?|
|5||What does it mean to be _________ in Britain today? #1 (maintaining traditions in modern Britain).|
|6||What does it mean to be _________ in Britain today? #2 (looking at stereotypes and prejudice and how they are successfully overcome)|
(the KS3 RE curriculum is currently being developed with this model in mind).
This arrangement allows us to ensure that teachers are confident about the learning in previous years, allowing comparison between religions and facilitating spaced practice. It allows for efficient staff training and the organisation of resources and visits. We also hope that siblings from different year groups will be able to discuss the same issues at home.
