At Twickenham Primary School, we follow the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus or Religious Education – Faith Makes a Difference.
In EYFS children are taught RE by using special books, objects, events, visiting special places of worship and by celebrating different festivals throughout the year. The children reflect on their own experiences and feelings and use their imagination and curiosity to develop a wonder of the world around them.
In KS1 and KS2The children learn from and learn about religion and rather than teaching Religions separately, they are taught through 24 dispositions,
Children are encouraged to learn and reflect by undertaking a variety of activities in lessons, by using artefacts and by making visits (where possible).
Religious Education promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development by helping them: to be reflective about their own beliefs; to be respectful of others with different faiths and beliefs; to celebrate diversity and to develop a greater understanding, tolerance and respect of those around them in Britain.
