Shropshire Agreed Syllabus
Our RE Coverage 2019/2020
The following document shows how the guidance in the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus is covered in our school. It ensures that pupils access the Key Questions and learn about a range of religions.
Churches in Albrighton
In Albrighton, we have several places of worship close by: St. Mary Magdalene (Albrighton), St. Chad (Boningale), St. Cuthbert (Donington). They run lots of great events for children, have a look at the website to find out more: https://www.albrightonparishchurch.org.uk/
There is also Albrighton Methodist Church.
Our school and our local community
We have a weekly assembly from Reverend Anna or Reverend Mary from St. Mary's Church. They talk to us about bible stories and we are encouraged to reflect.
Recently, Year 4 and 5 took part in a reflective art workshop looking at the collection entitled, 'Loving Hurting Dreaming'.
Our shared RE display
We have artefact boxes in school with a range of items and artefacts to aid our teaching of key religions. These are on display for all children to view, interact with and discuss.
Year 1 and 2
Year 1 and 2 have been learning about places of worship, routines and rituals. They have been discussing the difference between a routine and a ritual and how we can reflect on this is our every day lives.
The children looked at the use of rangoli patterns, a tradition to welcome guests at Hindu special events.
They also looked at the special place of Hindu worship called a Mandir (temple).
RQ1 and RQ5 (Shropshire Agreed Syllabus)
Year 4 and 5
Year 4 and 5 have been learning all about worship and what it means to have 'worth'. We looked at what worship is like across different religions including, Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam and Christianity.
We looked at the significance of music and prayer within worship.
Here are examples of us reflecting on The Lord's Prayer and thinking about what would be special to us in our own prayer.
RQ10 (Shropshire Agreed Syllabus)
Year 3 have also been learning about Hinduism but with a different focus. They have been looking at all aspects of Hindusim, and have been learning about 3 special Hindu festivals: Diwali, Holi and Navaratri.
Can you find out what each of these festivals celebrates?
RQ2 (Shropshire Agreed Syllabus)
Year 6 have been learning all about Creation Stories.
They discussed the theory behind creation stories and talked about people's beliefs. Pupils were given time to reflect on their own thoughts.
