Religious Education

Religious Education

We follow Awareness, Mystery and Value (AMV) the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education in Somerset.

We also use the teaching resource Understanding Christianity to support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it. We aim to see pupils leave school with a coherent understanding of Christian belief and practice.

Each term at Shoscombe we focus on a different Christian Value. These Christian values are explored during daily collective worship and through our cross curricular learning in class.

Our RE teaching also teaches children about other world religions and supports our children as they develop understanding, respect and tolerance to all faiths.

We have worked with local clergy to develop a coherent 2-year rolling programme for RE with very clear intent, implementation and intended impact. Key to this is our Biblical timeline as this helps to provide the narrative and structure for our RE lessons.

Spirituality

Each term our RE lessons also give children the time, space and opportunity to reflect on their own spirituality and what it might mean to them to pray. These lessons then link to our Collective Worship for the term.

In 2019 we designed and built a special garden where children are able to pause, reflect, pray and wonder. The children have helped to design this with Rev. Adam Pitt during term 1 where our focus value has been Creativity and Wonder. This project started with each class reflecting on special gardens in the bible and how different places can be special to different people.
