We have three RE weeks a year – one each term with a focus on a different aspect of the Kent Agreed Syllabus.
We have developed our teaching methodology from Hampshire’s Living Difference.
During our RE weeks we plan a cross-curricular topic. If other subjects fit in naturally we include them – if they don’t we do not force inappropriate links.
Teachers plan stimulating visits, speakers and learning opportunities. Our topics usually start with a ‘stimulus’.
We take the content for our RE weeks from the concepts in the Kent Agreed Syllabus:
Community Symbol Worship Light Brahman Belief Belonging Psalm Pilgrimage
Revelation Responsibility Authority Commandment Submission Torah
