At Belgrave, our intent is to give children:
An imaginative and stimulating curriculum that supports the children's progressive development of knowledge, understanding and skills within R.E.
Provide opportunities to engage with the reality and diversity of religious beliefs in the modern world which also supports wider community cohesion.
We further aim to equip all children with:
The ability to become critical enquirers into the world of religion
To ask and answer challenging questions about meaning and purpose and to reflect on their own personal experiences.
OUR DIGITAL WORSHIP
At Belgrave, we seek out opportunities for our pupils in order for them to enhance their knowledge, skills and experiences of the wider world which will help prepare them for their future successes.
Some examples of this include:
Regular visits to a range of different Places of Worship.
Speakers from a range of different Religions coming in to speak with the children.
Designated days to celebrate festivals within different Religions, e.g. Easter services, Diwali day, Eid celebrations, Harvest celebrations.
Having strong links with our church, St. Bartholomew’s and taking part in services here, e.g., Choir visiting at Christmas.
Raising money for various different charities, and supporting local food banks.
CROSS CURRICULAR LINKS
The skills and knowledge the children use in RE complement those in the rest of the curriculum. These are just some of the ways that RE links to other areas of their study:
In RE, we hope for the children to become thinkers and enquirers, just as we would in Science.
The children use their artistic skills often in RE, from designing places of Worship to creating their own prayer mats.
In both Geography and RE, the children are encouraged to think critically and thoughtfully about the world in which they live.
Through 1:1 iPad usage, the children research many different religions and practices.
