“Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads as long as we reach the same goal? In reality, there are as many different religions as there are individuals.”
RE to us is…
RE at Hillside aims to encourage interest in different world religions and views and how they fit into our world. We want to give children an understanding of the different religions and how they impact on the daily lives of the followers and how the different religions and world views have an impact on the world around us.
This is achieved through a range of learning opportunities and experiences delivered as a discrete subject separate to our enquiry. Children learn key knowledge and are encouraged to develop the skills of RE such as enquiring into what enables different communities to live together respectfully and reflecting on the different ways of life around us.
A year 6 RE student will be able to:
- Describe key religions and how they impact on daily life.
- Reflect personally and respond critically to questions around religion and world views.
- Discuss concepts such as belonging, meaning, purpose and truth.
