Our ambition for all pupils in Religious Education at Thythorn Field is that our children will become ‘RE literate’ and develop understanding and curiosity about different world religions, worldviews and beliefs. Children explore their beliefs and opinions whilst accepting that different viewpoints are valid and worthwhile. Our aim is to develop confidence for expression and tolerance of others’ in society.- this approach very much enriches PSHE learning and approaches, to successfully integrate in society today. RE has a place both in furthering your child's view of different Religions and also in their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding of the World. 


The progressively planned units of work have been designed to teach our children a breadth religions and worldviews, providing opportunities to build upon prior learning and lead to a depth of knowledge. We plan coverage with our local context and community in mind, ensuring it represents the diversity of our school.   


The RE curriculum has been carefully sequenced so that vocabulary and key concepts help our children to learn and develop progressively as children move along their curriculum journey, from term to term, and from year to year. This enables our pupils to develop a growing aptitude for dialogue concerning religions, worldviews and communities. We want to give our pupils the knowledge and understanding they need to express their own ideas, values and identities.  


At Thythorn, teachers plan RE by first considering the ‘WHAT’ we want our pupils to learn and then we decide the most appropriate method to teach that curriculum content so that it will be memorable and learning will stick!  


The range of teaching approaches we use in RE will include the use of narrative (stories) to help embed abstract concepts and ideas, first-hand experiences through meeting people from different religions, studying religious objects and learning from religious art work and artefacts, e.g. we subscribe to Library Services resource boxes. Each class includes a range of online 360° virtual visits, inviting specialist into school as well as places of worship visits.
