Religious Education is provided for all children as part of the curriculum and is taught in accordance with the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
R.E lessons offer a chance for children to explore beliefs and practices of 5 major world faiths. Visits to places of worship, handling artefacts and visits from practising members of different faiths enhance children’s understanding of our society, while developing their understanding, tolerance and respect for the beliefs of others.
R.E. is a large part of SMSC and it is through RE that we examine spiritual beliefs from around the world including those of the children and their families.
We hope to give the children more understanding through displays, visits, lessons and discussions.
We believe by encouraging the children to ask questions about what they see and hear that this enables them to be active independent learners.
During the Autumn Term we have celebrated Eid al-Adha, Yom Kippur and Diwali.
Our next celebrations will include Christmas and Hanukkah.
