At Stretham Community Primary School, we believe it is important for all our pupils to learn about and from Religion & Worldviews so they can understand more fully the world around them.
We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values and experiences.
Religion & Worldviews plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, in promoting social awareness and understanding in our children and in promoting British Values.
We offer a carefully sequence and structured curriculum to engage and inspire all pupils, regardless of background, gender, ethnic origin or additional needs in order for pupils to:
- Acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and the other principal religions and worldviews represented in the UK
- Appreciate the way that religious beliefs and worldviews shape life and behaviour
- Develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues
- Enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
In Key Stage 2, we use materials from 'Opening Worlds'. Key subject-specific vocabulary is built upon and developed throughout the pupils' time in school, aiding progression.
Year 4 pupils acted out the Hindu story of Rama and Sita and then created a whole class story map to help retell the story.
