At Hyde Heath School we believe that it is essential for our children to learn about different faiths and beliefs so that they can treat all people with respect and understanding. We teach RE following the Bucks Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education ‘Challenging RE’. Each week we look at a different theme – such as belonging, our world or special places- and relate this topic to ourselves and then other people of the world. Christianity is the focus religion for our study in Year 1 and in Year 2 we compare this with Judaism. All pupils enjoy an annual visit to a place of worship. Throughout our study, the children are encouraged to consider their own thoughts, feelings and beliefs and respect those of others. We enjoy learning about RE through stories, activities, music, drama and art.
The children join together daily for assembly where we stop and think for a while together about the world and our place in it. We share and embrace the weekly value, instill the importance of our golden rules and enjoy hearing about other peoples’ lives and their religions and beliefs.
