Here at Little Milton, we have been following the Discovery scheme of work for RE for the past few years. We are currently working on an updated scheme of work with high quality, sequential learning that has been specifically designed to meet the Church of England Statement for Entitlement as well as suit our small school setting with mixed aged classes. We have planned that, as a school, we will all focus on the same core concept each half term and this theme will link closely with our school values. We will be using units of work from the Oxford Diocese scheme of work and Discovery to build up the knowledge and skills we aim to teach before our pupils move on to Key Stage 3. We are grateful to the Oxford Diocese Board of Education for their help and support developing our curriculum.
We assess our learning outcomes each half term. This helps us to build in relevant retrieval practice and consolidate learning. We study Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam. We also study Humanism and explore how people with no faith live out their beliefs and values. Philosophical questions are explored in each unit. Open discussions and debate are encouraged and our pupils enjoy the freedom of knowing there are no “right” or “wrong” answers. We encourage visits from people with a range of faiths and we aim to visit different places of worship each year so we can learn more about the diversity of beliefs in our society as well as the diversity within each of the religions we study.
Our overall aim is that, in line with our school vision, we grow and flourish in our understanding and knowledge of the world and its inhabitants so we can become contributing members of society.
Watch this space for our new scheme!
