At Hawkinge Primary School the RE curriculum is taught using the Kent Agreed Syllabus 2017-2022. The aims of the curriculum are to ensure that all pupils:

  1. Know about and understand a range of religions and worldviews
  2. Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews
  3. Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews

The curriculum overview for the RE scheme of work can be found on the links below for KS1& KS2 and for The Early Years Foundation Stage.

We really enjoy getting feedback from pupils about the RE curriculum below are some of the things the children say:

  • I really enjoyed learning about Holi and Ramadan. – Izobelle Yr 4
  • I like finding out about religions. – Lily Yr 3
  • It is interesting to find out about other religions festivals. – Katie Yr 3
  • We learn about different Religions. – Annie Yr 1
  • We are told stories about God. – Cleo Yr 1
  • We learn about Jesus. – Emily Yr 1
  • We like acting out the stories, like the one we heard about Moses. – Oscar Yr 1
  • I like RE because we can look at all types of people and learn about their God. – Jasper Yr 2
  • I like RE because we learn about all types of religions and you could become one. – Alexa Yr 2
  • We see lots of film clips about religion. – Connor Yr 2

The children enjoy using role play to re-enact some of the stories they learn about.

They also use art; for example, below is a picture of Torah Scrolls pupils made – each child wrote ‘A rule for us all’ and children paintings images of the Holi Festival.

We like to visit the church in Hawkinge to find out more about Christianity. Blow is a picture of Reverend Grinsell teaching EYFS pupils about infant baptism.
