Religious Education

At Wraxall we have an enquiry based approach to the teaching of RE, providing key questions to be answered which are engaging and thought provoking, encouraging and developing deeper thinking. We seek to enrich RE learning by using a range of learning activities and approaches; engaging with real religious artefacts and texts, embracing the creative arts such as music, poetry and art, using technology and wherever possible using visits and visitors. We make links with the children's own experiences of the world and developing beliefs, and make connections to our values curriculum and PSHE where possible.

We follow the locally agreed syllabus as our legal framework for RE. We supplement this using the Understanding Christianity (Church of England) scheme of work. Our RE curriculum follows a two year rolling programme which ensure children experience the required 50% or more on Christianity, as well as covering the main religious worldviews of Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and Sikhism. The teaching of these units is delivered through an hour per week of learning or blocked over a term if appropriate.
