Religious Education at Crockham Hill:
Subject Leader: Mrs G Lakin-Hall
Link Governor: Barbara Mitchell
At Crockham Hill CE Primary School, the RE curriculum is designed to provide a systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religions and worldviews can address. Pupils are encouraged to develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as developing responses of their own. We work through a progression of skills using the process of 'Windows, Mirrors, Doors' as a structure for a sequence of lessons and the lessons themselves as it enables children to observe and learn, reflect, and then think about where they are going next. This enables their own spiritual development.
Whilst 50% of our learning focuses on our understanding of Christianity, we also explore and learn about a range of World Religions such as Judaism, Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism. We use 'Golden Threads' to make links between World Religions so that children are able to focus on the many similarities, whilst reviewing and reflecting on what might be different to their own culture and why.
Through this subject, pupils have a better understanding of the 'Bible Timeline' and are able to evaluate who they are, make choices and decisions and by the end of year 6, have started to shape themselves into the person they wish to become.
