The RE Curriculum
At St Simon and St Jude C of E Primary School we follow the Diocesan guidelines and teach using units from this and Understanding Christianity.
Our teaching is organised into half term blocks and we have a unit to cover in each of these. There are a range of activities used to teach RE including drama, art, talk, debate, thinking skills as well as writing. In most half terms we have an RE week as well as teaching a weekly RE lesson. We do this so the children begin to develop a deeper understanding of the subject.
The curriculum is organised so that in each Year group the children learn about Christianity and usually one other major world religion. Children learn to respect people from all faiths and none.
