RE

At Bankview we have multiple faiths that are believed by our pupils and our RE department does its best to show the children all the different faiths. The links below will help you with any homework tasked to you by your teacher and it will also let you get more information if you are curious about a religion and want to know more.

Religious Education at Bank View

In RE lessons at Bank View, students learn about Christianity as well as the other 5 main world religions of Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Sikhism.  It is not collective worship, rather education about religion.  RE lessons cover elements of psychology, sociology and anthropology because it is ultimately a study of people and how they act in their communities. In addition to religious views, non-religious beliefs are shared and respected. Students are encouraged to bring their own experiences into the classroom. In lessons students are challenged to develop their critical thinking skills and show empathy for others and their lives.

 

Key Stage 2

Students in KS2 are following new Schemes of Work following the syllabus set by the Liverpool SACRE. Each unit has been designed to suit the needs of our students here at Bank View. The department uses a range of learning activities to encourage pupils to learn including… drama and role play, music, drawing, painting and 3D modelling, discussion, watching film clips, handling religious artefacts as well as some written work.
