Religious Education

RE curriculum.PNG

 

At Dee Point Primary School, we follow the Cheshire agreed syllabus for Religious Education in accordance with Cheshire's Standing Advisory Council of Religious Education (SACRE) Please follow the link below to view our long term plan.

 

At Dee Point Primary School we study the following religions under the agreed syllabus:

  • Christianity
  • Islam
  • Judaism
  • Hinduism 
  • Sikhism 

Along with these religions we also make links to British Values, Humanism and No Outsiders.

Through the teaching of RE, children learn the essential knowledge of other religions and worldviews, as well as skills and attitudes such as critical thinking and empathy. This understanding of others’ worldviews is an essential first step to enabling each pupil to understand, reflect on and develop their own personal worldview, which is one of the core tasks of education.

In KS1 and KS2, Religious Education is taught weekly every half term.  Teachers use and share the knowledge organisers for each unit with the children (please click the tab to download the relevant knowledge organisers for each year group.) 

In line with implementation as part of a cohesive curriculum, teachers will plan:  

  • A key question that forms the focus for the topic
  • To progressively develop the children’s acquisition of knowledge and vocabulary in order for them to deeply understand the key concepts of the curriculum they are being taught
  • To build on existing prior knowledge
  • Strong, meaningful links between subjects wherever possible to connect learning
  • To link their teaching to the Global Goals to show the children how what we learn impacts others around the world
  • To build up memory, so that when children encounter a new topic, they will be able to activate prior learning and make connections

It is essential that the key knowledge, skills and attitudes that pupils are taught are monitored and tracked as they move through school.  We know that children have gained the expected knowledge and understanding of other religions and worldviews through various types of formative and summative assessment, which is undertaken on a regular basis.  Encouraging pupils to reflect on their own learning, as well as their own developing worldviews, is done through peer and self-assessment.
