Religious Education

    At Holme Slack Community Primary we value the teaching of Religious Education as a way of exploring big questions such as

,"What it means to be human". The religions we study reflect those in our school community and those in the wider world. 

We follow the Lancashire Syllabus 2016 and the planning for the units of work and adapt them to meet the needs of our children. 


   We believe that quality teaching of RE stems from :

   promoting respect and knowledge of the beliefs and values of others

  being able to articulate and share our own beliefs 

  fostering a curiosity and excitement about the ways others lead their lives. 


 We aim to enrich and enhance our RE curriculum through :

 Celebrating the festivals of the major religions Eg Christianity , Islam and Hinduism. 

 Visits to local places of worship

 Exploration of artefacts 

 "At the scene" role play and" hot seating" situations

Welcoming visitors to share their beliefs including parents and carers. 








We enhance our learning through celebrations, creative projects, artefact investigation and visits and visitors.

Our handling of Sikh artefacts initiated lots of questions.

Year 3 enjoyed their visit to a local mosque.
