From this September we will be using the revised version of the Religious Education Agreed Syllabus for Lincolnshire (2018-2023). We will be following this syllabus very closely for the planning, teaching and assessing of RE. There have been some significant changes to the syllabus. Children in Key Stage One will now explore two religions in greater detail. These religions are Christianity and Islam. Children in Key Stage Two will now study three religions in greater depth. These religions are Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. Children will still learn about other world religions but these will be taught through themes such as places of worship, pilgrimage or thankfulness. Please take a look at the overview for RE across the school.
What a busy time in the Christian calendar !
We celebrated Christmas in school in many ways, including creating Nativity scenes with our EYFS and KS1 children. These were displayed in St. Peter's church in Foston where many of our children live. The scenes were on display in the church just before Christmas alongside many scenes owned by local residents. here are some pictures of the scenes.
In R.E. we have been exploring the world faith of Hinduism. Sunita Patel, a practicing Hindu, came into school and worked with all the children in KS2 doing a variety of faith related activities such as Rangoli art, Bollywood style dancing, story-telling and exploring what life is really like in India. Take a look at what we got up to!
