Religious Education at Foxhill
To support the delivery of RE, teachers use resources published by Discovery RE alongside the Bradford agreed syllabus. Children are taught to understand and respect the importance of religious beliefs in the world around them. The aim is to allow pupils to explore themes and concepts within religion drawing on beliefs from a range of different faiths and world views. We aim to ensure that the RE curriculum is challenging, dynamic and relevant to pupils of all ages. We have implemented an enquiry based approach, encouraging higher -order thinking and allowing our children to explore in a way that is meaningful to them.
We have developed a progression of skills with each year group, which enables pupils to build on and develop their knowledge and skills each year. At the start of each topic children will review previous learning and will have the opportunity to share what they already know about a current topic. Effective use of education visits are planned, to enrich and enhance the pupil’s learning experiences within the RE curriculum.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum supports children’s understanding of Religious Education through the planning and teaching of ‘Understanding the World’. Children are encouraged to use their imagination and curiosity to develop their appreciation of, and wonder at, the world in which they live. Exploring others views, cultures and beliefs supports children in developing their views and beliefs about themselves, their family and community. In finding out about others, young children are encouraged to reflect on belief, culture and practice and explore faith through observing festivals and celebrations, sharing stories, visuals, toys and puppets, handling real artefacts, roleplay, books and discussion .
