Together as One
In RE we learn about the beliefs and thoughts of ourselves and others.
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.
What our pupils say about RE at Oakhill
"I enjoyed learning about the different theories on how the world started. I didn't know this before and this allowed me to have my own opinion."
"I like the fact that we show our understanding in lots of different ways like drawing or writing"
"RE is good because it helps everyone have respect for peoples views and beliefs"
