RE lesson/workshop days 2018/19
Religious Education (RE) support is available for both primary and secondary schools.
LHT has put together a series of lessons based on Christianity from the REC and the Northamptonshire SACRE “A Curriculum Framework for Religious Education in England” for 2018 – 2023.
These lessons are intended to help support schools in their learning and can be done:
- in a traditional lesson style
- or during ‘R.E. days’ on a termly basis with Reception, Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6.
These lesson/workshops help cover the legal requirement to teach a broad and balanced curriculum, which includes RE.
We can be flexible to suit your requirements. Lighthouse Trust is continually developing new Christian resources for R.E lessons, so If there is something that you require, please feel free to discuss with us any request you might have.
“RE is an important curriculum subject. It is important in its own right and it also makes a unique contribution to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and supports wider community cohesion.”
Religious Education in English Schools: Non-statutory guidance 2010
Explaining religious and non-religious worldviews in an academic way allows young people to engage with the complexities of belief, avoid stereotyping and contribute to an informed debate.”
Why RE Matters -The RE
Schools have the flexibility to provide more coherent and integrated cross-curricular learning experiences to complement discrete subject teaching tailored to the needs of their pupils and community.
Religions deal with some of the most profound and difficult questions in human life, questions such as:
- What is the purpose of life?
- How should people treat each other?
- How do we explain and cope with death and suffering?
To do this RE needs:
- to develop pupils’ skills;
- to enable them to ask questions;
- to discover information, to approach new material with empathy;
- to reflect on their learning. Pupils should not only acquire knowledge but also be able to use their knowledge to understand their world, build community, and develop their personal position.
Throughout the RE curriculum pupils are encouraged to explore religions, engage with their knowledge, and reflect on their learning and their lives.
