When we are being Theologians, we learn through the Discovery RE programme. It follows an enquiry approach which covers the 6 principal religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism, plus other belief systems. Christianity is taught in every year group, with Christmas and Easter enquiries building on prior learning. Each enquiry starts with an enquiry question, and then follows four stages: engagement, investigation, evaluation and expression. Learning opportunities include oracy tasks, stories and collaborative work to answer small questions about the religion being studied.
During your child’s time at Filton Avenue Primary school, they will have the opportunity to visit places of worship, including: a church, synagogue, Hindu temple, Gurdwara and Buddhist centre. We also welcome visitors in during our Theologian days to help our learners acquire a deeper understand of the principles behind different faiths. This also gives them the opportunity to ask questions and discover more.
