The Religious Education curriculum in Prep encompasses the study of the six major world religions with a particular emphasis on Christianity. Pupils learn about and reflect upon the teachings, beliefs, customs, practises and traditions of different religions.
During the lessons the pupils learn through a variety of activities including discussion, debate, role play, ICT activities, a wide variety of writing activities, class assemblies, Art using a variety of media and educational visits.
Religious art forms an exciting part of the curriculum incorporating a cross-curricular Art project in Year 6. The children also study founders of religions and leadership, places of worship, sacred texts, religious festivals and finally, religious ‘big questions’. This gives the pupils a chance to debate moral and theological issues.
The Blue Coat School promotes respect and understanding of each other’s religions through the RE curriculum.
