Autumn Term - 'The Big Bang' Evolution, Adaptation and Volcanoes

At Manadon Vale, RE is taught to give every child the opportunity to explore the big questions about life, to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to their lives. Pupils gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief and to reflect on their own ideas and ways of living.
In Key Stage 1 and 2, we follow the Plymouth Agreed Syllabus for RE. The principal religions and non-religious worldviews represented in the UK are covered taught through 'Key Questions'. These key questions are explored through the study of sacred texts, through creative arts, with visiting speakers and visits to places of worship and with lively discussion and debate.
In Year 6 the key questions are:
What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britain today?
Why do Christians believe Jesus was the Messiah? (Incarnation) Creation and Science: conflicting or complementary?
Why do some people believe in God and some people not?
What matters most to Humanist and Christians? How does faith help when life gets hard?
There are lots more fun games to help you to learn on the Kids' Zone page! Take a look and have a go!
