Bottesford Infant School

Tall Oaks From Little Acorns Grow

Religious Education (R.E.)

The children are taught RE through 3 main themes as outlined below:


  • Beliefs and practices - Children are taught about what people of different faiths believe, they will explore and discuss sacred stories, find out about different religious festivals, learn about the different ways in which people worship and explore places of worship and how they are used. 


  • Identity and values - Children will explore what makes themselves and others unique, learn about religious values and rules, discuss important religious ceremonies and artefacts used within them. 


  •  Meaning and purpose - Children will explore creation stories from holy books, ask think and talk about 'Big Questions' of meaning, purpose and truth and consider how the world is a special place and how it should be cared for. 
It is a requirement in KS1 that the children learn about Christianity and 1 other religion. We have chosen as a school to focus on Hinduism as our other religion. But we will ensure the children are introduced to other religions and cultures also as part of their learning.
