Farnley Tyas C of E First School

Religious Education (RE)

'Working together to be the best we can be'


As a Federation, we have designed our RE curriculum around three key aims of study which are:

A. Making sense of beliefs,

B. Making connections

C. Understanding the impact.


Within these aims we build in the required coverage of religions and world views, which also includes non-religious views. 


We want our children:

to know that R.E stands for Religious Education.

to be able to hold informed conversations about belief and the world in which we live.

to develop a broad and balanced understanding of religions and worldviews and develop critical thinking skills.


We have a two-year rolling programme for RE which sets out our curriculum coverage of skills and knowledge. We use a combination of the Locally Agreed Syllabus and Understanding Christianity as the material for teaching R.E.

Below you can see an example of how RE looks at Farnley Tyas First School. 


We check children’s learning by asking key questions and by using regular quizzes at the beginning and end of lessons.

We ask pupils to record their thinking as pupil voice activities.

We use knowledge organisers to help children to remember what they have learnt.
