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 2021, using 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:

enlightened promoting respect and knowledge of the beliefs and values of others

 enlightened being able to articulate and share our own beliefs 

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


 We aim to enrich and enhance our RE curriculum through :

enlightened Celebrating the festivals of the major religions Eg Christianity, Islam and Hindu Dharma. 

enlightened Exploration of artefacts 

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

enlightenedWelcoming visitors to share their beliefs including parents and carers (where possible)

 enlightened Visits to local places of worship (where possible)



A Lancashire Agreed Syllabus end of EYFS expectations document is currently being re-written by SACRE. It will be uploaded here when available. 

Celebrating Eid May 2021 and Donating Food to a Local Charity- The Foxton Centre

Celebrating Eid May 2021

As a school we celebrated Eid by having a party in each of our classrooms, we wore our best party clothes and played games with each other!

Another amazing part of the day, was the overwhelming generosity with the food donations, which have been donated to The Foxton Centre. The Centre support families, youths and children with outreach projects in Preston. They were thankful for the donation and praised the children and families for their generosity.

Thank you all again for a lovely day and Eid Mubarak!

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.
