Religious Education Curriculum Statement
Religious Education is provided in accordance with the agreed Wakefield syllabus for Religious Education. The aim of our Religious Education curriculum is to support our children to learn all about and engage with religious beliefs and practices and to develop an awareness of spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues. We also foster in our children a respect for other peoples’ views and to celebrate the diversity in society. Through acquiring knowledge and an understanding of religious beliefs and practices through the teaching of our Religious Education curriculum, our children grow in confidence and are able to ask appropriate questions, and can form and express their own opinions and beliefs. Our Religious Education curriculum provides lots of enjoyable learning opportunities, such as role play, drama, discussion, debate and visits. We also encourage and promote links with the local community and churches.

In Year 5, the children read different statements and had to move along a continuum line on the floor in response to the statements. The continuum included ‘Proved’, ‘Very Strong Evidence’, ‘Some Evidence’, ‘Possible but Uncertain’, ‘Some Evidence Against’, ‘Strong Evidence Against’ and ‘Disproved’. The children explained why they chose that part of the continuum for the different statements that were shared.
In Year 5, the children looked at good news stories and bad news stories and discussed if the bad news stories were a natural evil or a moral evil.
