Religious Education at Farnborough Grange
At Farnborough Grange, our Religious Education (RE) curriculum supports the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children. The RE curriculum is linked closely with our PSHE curriculum and our three school values.
Within our RE curriculum, Farnborough Grange children will learn about Christianity and other principal religions so that they can discover, explore and consider the world around them. Our children will learn to explore differing beliefs, whilst beginning to develop their own beliefs, values and identity and the confidence to share this with others.
We aim to teach our lessons in a creative and interesting way to engage the pupils through Art, DT, Drama and use a range of artefacts we have in the school.
We believe that RE should help our children to develop the ability to; become a respectful member of society, being able to clearly and coherently articulate their own beliefs, values and experiences, whilst respecting the rights of others who have differing beliefs.
We use the Surrey Agreed Syllabus when teaching RE and throughout the year, we hold whole school events focussing on the main events of the Christian calendar, for example Easter and Christmas events. Our learning enquiries offer opportunities to explore other religious celebrations, such as Diwali.
Our Year 2's enjoyed visiting The Church of the Good Shepherd where they had a go at making their own Torah's!
