Hello everyone, I am Mrs Wilson and the RE Coordiator at Mansfield Primary Academy.
At Mansfield Primary Academy, we aim to teach engaging and stimulating RE lessons that allow pupils to discover, explore and consider different views of different religions from around the world. We follow the Milestones outlined in the Essential’s Curriculum and aim to incorporate the following concepts into our teaching.
- Understanding Beliefs and Teachings.
- Understanding Practices and Lifestyles of different Religions
- Understanding of how beliefs are conveyed.
- Understanding of values.
Our lessons promote moral, social, spiritual and cultural development of all pupils and enable children to develop knowledge and understanding of different religious beliefs, rituals and attitudes.
Our teaching of religious Education at Mansfield Primary Academy aims to ensure that pupils have the skills to understand a range of religious views, be able to express ideas and understand the impact of different religions and to express their own ideas and thoughts about the world in which we live.
At Mansfield Primary Academy pupils learn about Christianity and other world religions.
EYFS: In the Foundation Stage, we aim to develop children’s sense of awareness about themselves and their community. Children will learn about Christianity and a selection of other religions including those they may find in their classroom.
KS1- Pupils in Year 1 & 2 will learn about Christianity, and at least one other religion.
KS2- Children in Key stage 2 will cover Christianity and two other religions (Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Judaism)
Our RE Curriculum Map outlines which concepts are covered in each year group. Take a look at the document below.
The intended impact of teaching Religious Education at Mansfield Primary Academy is that pupils are equipped with extensive RE knowledge and vocabulary, have a passion for RE and a sense of curiosity to investigate different religions, understand the differences and similarities of different religions and are able to express themselves and become more spiritually, morally, socially and culturally aware.
