Religious Education

RATIONALE
At Norwood we aim to provide opportunities to learn about and explore Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism through artifacts, dance, drama, mime, visual aids and ICT. Whenever possible we will try to visit places of worship being studied.  The beliefs of other religions will be addressed as and when occasions arise.
 
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

  • Provide opportunities in which a sense of awe and wonder may be stimulated and a religious interpretation considered
  • Achieve Religious Literacy by maintaining a balance between Christianity and some of the other principal religions represented in Britain
  • To promote pupils spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.’
  • Development of spiritual values
  • Preparation for adult life
  • Develop religious literacy and tolerance towards the beliefs of others
  • Be able to express knowledge and understanding of a story or event through mime, drama, art, dancing, ICT and writing

TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACHES

  • R.E. is taught as part of the curriculum.  A spiral approach to formal curriculum planning might revisit key topics in greater breadth and depth
  • R.E. will be taught weekly as a separate subject with close links to P.S.H.E. or blocked throughout the year
