At Bevington, we follow the RBKC ‘Exploring Beliefs and Values’ agreed syllabus. By the end of Year 6, children will have explored all major world religions: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Humanism. Lessons are active and resource-driven to enhance and deepen the children’s learning experience. Children will explore a vast range of religious resources, including religious clothing, items used for worship and sacred texts for all major world religions. Immersive experiences (for example taking part in Jewish Seder meals and experiencing Buddhist prayer) take place in every classroom. Worship, inspirational figures, stories, celebrations and signs and symbols are explored within each religion.
Children also explore Big Questions, which are designed for children to discuss religious themes in a greater depth, reflect on their own beliefs and explore the different beliefs of others. An example of a Big Question is: ‘Has religion made the world a better place?”
Places of Worship
Children will visit places of worship of all major religions during their time at Bevington. Children are encouraged to ask questions to explore worship further, as well as identifying similarities between worship in different world religions.
