Religious Education

RE is about helping children to understand how people with different beliefs make sense of life, and to have confidence to think through big questions for themselves.

We find out what people do in different religions, beginning with children from Christian and Jewish families, then later from Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist and Humanist families.  We learn through shared stories, drama, creativity, study of artefacts, visits and visitors or `virtual’ experiences through ICT.

We also talk a lot because we are developing our thinking skills. We need to know how we fit into the world around us, what is important to us and how what we do will make a difference to other people – and to ourselves!
