Religious Education

At Woodlands, RE is taught through an enquiry/question based approach and compliments the 2013 RE Agreed Syllabus. Each enquiry is based around a key question whereby the children can go through the process of investigating the question based on a specific religion, presenting their findings in creative ways, reflecting on what they have found out and sharing it with others and finally returning to the key question to see if an answer has been found, or if indeed we have more questions we would like to investigate!


Below are some of the activities the children experience within the RE Curriulum:

Every January/February the Year 6 children take part in 'Bible Explorers', a five week course that runs through the history and geography of the Old Testament in a fun and engaging way.

In Years 2 and 6 the children have the opportunity to experience the 'Hope Journey' in the Autumn Term. The Year 2 classes attend Whitby Methodist and have the opportunity to meet the characters in the Christmas Story. Meanwhile, the Year 6 children focus on Armistice day.

In Years 1 and 2 , the children also have the lovely opportunity to 'Sing the Christmas Story' at Chester Cathedral.

In Year 3 the children have the opportunity to visit Whitby Methodist where the meaning of Holy Communion is explained and how it links with the Easter story.
