Religious Education (R.E.) at Garland

Children will be exposed to a variety of world religions, cultures and beliefs throughout their time at Garland.

Staff at Garland promote a positive learning environment which is open and respectful, where children can both share and learn, helping them to identify their own self-worth and identity in a multi-cultural society.

Using the “Discovery RE” enquiry scheme as a base, units studied allow children to engage with the concept from their own experience, relate findings to the world around them, investigate questions and evaluate or apply their knowledge.

RE lessons allow great opportunities for the children to learn and practice specific vocabulary and to articulate their beliefs and opinions in a non-judgemental environment.

Lessons have a strong focus on oracy and enquiry, which are reinforced through the employment of practical activities, visitors, or trips to local religious buildings to enable children to understand and explore as fully as possible.

Here at Garland we use the Discovery RE syllabus, which complies with the Pan- Berks syllabus.

Don't take our word for it, here's what our pupils think................

“RE wasn’t my strong point, but now I enjoy the challenge of the thinking we do” (Year 4 pupil)

“People want to show their religion. We learn to respect them.” (Year 5 pupil)

“RE lessons are fun, they’re not just all writing – we do interesting things like partner work, group work, Venn diagrams and discussion.” (Year 5 pupil).
