Religious Education




At St Paul’s the children and their families can expect a religious education curriculum that is rich and varied in religious vocabulary, enabling learners to acquire knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith and an introduction to other world faiths which will encourage a love and confidence in the subject.



Religious Education can make an important contribution to pupils’ use of language by enabling them to:


■ Acquire and develop a specialist vocabulary in the subject of Religious Education.

■ Communicate their ideas with depth and precision, ask questions and be able to explain concepts and practices.

■ Listen to the views and ideas of others, including people from religious traditions and issues.

■ Be enthused about the power and beauty of language, draw meaning recognising its limitations.

■ Develop their speaking and listening skills when considering religions, beliefs and ideas and articulating their responses.

■ Read, particularly from sacred texts.

■ Write in different styles, such as poetry, diaries, reports, extended writing and note taking.

■ Evaluate clearly and rationally, using a range of reasoned, balanced arguments and put their opinions forward and appreciate differing views of others.

■ Reflect on feelings, relationships and experiences in their own and lives of others.


The following vocabulary is shared with the children during lessons using the Questful RE 2017 and through acts of worship. The children are encouraged to use this vocabulary both written and verbally
