RE – curriculum information
RE is an important part of the curriculum at Wheeler, allowing the children to develop their knowledge of ‘cultural diversity’.
During Key Stage 1 the children are given the opportunity to study Christianity and at least 1 other Religion. Whilst in Key stage 2 the children continue to study Christianity in further detail and at least 2 other Religions.
The school has links to the local church through Harvest, Easter and Christmas services. RE lessons are further enhanced through visits to places of worship for a variety of faith groups, visitors and resources. When possible RE is be taught through or links made to other curriculum areas.
Lessons in RE are to be enquiry-based, where appropriate, to allow children to ask questions, investigate, draw conclusions, evaluate and reflect.
