Our RE work not only covers the teaching and stories of Christianity, but also investigates other World religions. Lessons always start with a "Big Question", encouraging children to share their own thoughts and ideas, no matter what those are, and to listen to the views of others. They are always times of lively, open discussion and debate. As part of this RE curriculum, as the children progress through school, we visit different places of worship, including those of different Christian denominations and those of other religions, including a mosque, a synagogue and a Sikh temple.
As well as timetabled RE lessons, there will always be other times in the curriculum where big questions of faith arise, such as when looking at natural disasters, Space or the Second World War. We make time and space to discuss these questions as they occur, not in any prescriptive way, but in a manner so as to allow the children to investigate their own and others opinions and beliefs.
