RE

 

The RE curriculum in EYFS begins with children developing a positive attitude towards their peers, respecting their right to have beliefs that are different to their own.  Children from EYFS to Year 6 are taught RE through stories, visitors, circle time, images and artefacts. This learning continues through Key Stages 1 and 2 where children look at the five main religions. They develop an understanding of the influence of beliefs, values and traditions on individuals, communities, societies and cultures. Children are encouraged to discuss similarities and differences between religions and their beliefs, understanding the importance of dialogue between them.
