In Key Stage One RE pupils learn 'about' religion but also learn 'from' religion – making their own decisions about how the concept behind a story/celebration may affect their own lives. During KS1 pupils learn to name and talk about religious stories, celebrations and artefacts and begin to make links whilst looking for similarities. They investigate how different experiences make them feel, learn to ask big questions and think about values in their own lives.
At Woodlands Infant and Nursery School one of our core values is Respect. This is taught throughout school as we learn to respect everyone and realise we all have similarities and differences. Our Religious Education is taught across Year One and Two in accordance with the Lincolnshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2018. We strive to give the children quality, first hand experiences.
All of our Lessons are carefully planned to ensure continuity and progression. Children record their learning and experiences in a variety of ways, such as drama, art, music or in writing. Learning is undertaken both individually and collaboratively with other pupils.
The scheme is designed to encourage balanced and informed conversations about religion and belief.
Our planning works in:
• A one year cycle for Reception
• A two year cycle for Years 1 and 2 (Key stage 1)
