What Does RE Look Like at Stone C of E Combined School?
At Stone School, RE is a time for children to share their thoughts and feelings on a variety of beliefs and customs as well as to learn more about these as part of the multi-cultural world we live in. As a Church school, it is important to us to share the Christian faith with the children and we also spend time studying the other major world religions.
RE is taught weekly in a 75 minute lesson. During this time we aim to develop the children’s ability to reflect on their own beliefs and to explore other perspectives on the nature of faith. Pupils also develop an awareness of the range of cultures within Christianity and other faiths at local and global levels.
We follow the Oxford Diocese Scheme of Work and are supplementing this with the Understanding Christianity resources to ensure that we offer a variety of resources through which to teach this subject in an engaging way. In Stone, our RE is supported by the services, festivals and interactive assemblies that we are fortunate enough to be involved in over the school year.
Our assemblies help to underpin the important Christian values of Community, Perseverance, Honesty, Compassion, Respect and Responsibility which we encourage the children to learn and to reflect on.
