Religious Education at St Cleopas
A high quality religious education (RE) curriculum is essential to teach a broad and balanced curriculum. At the heart of RE in our school is the teaching of Christianity, rooted in the person and work of Jesus Christ. As part of an inclusive community, we encourage learning about other religions and world views fostering respect for all.
Below are just some examples of the wonderful RE at St Cleopas.
Please see individual class pages to find further celebration of our RE work.
A fantastic turn out for our Sweaty Church event. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn about God through sports and activities. The children thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities with Becca and Mike and are looking forward to our next session at Easter!
Miss McDowell is part of the LTLRE North programme. This aims to improve the quality of Religious Education in all schools in the region through:
• building communities of RE teachers across the region in hubs
• engaging in research projects
• disseminating best practice
• creating partnerships with others
Becca and Mike have been busy working with key stage 2 classes to discover the true meaning of Easter. Thank you :)
A huge thank you to Mike for the fantastic sweaty church event! Great fun and lots of reflection.
We looked at the importance and symbolism of light to many different faith groups.
Christians use light at many special services throughout the year, but can also be used during worship to remind us of the Holy Spirit.
Lamps are lit in Sikhism on Diwali, the festival of light. These lamps, which are traditionally fueled by mustard oil, are placed in rows or patterns in windows, doors and outside buildings to decorate them.
