The curriculum for RE aims to ensure that all pupils can:
1. Make sense of a range of religious and non-religious beliefs, so that they can identify, describe, explain and analyse beliefs and concepts in the context of living religions; explain how and why these beliefs are understood in different ways and recognise how and why sources of authority are used, expressed and interpreted in different ways.
2. Understand the impact and significance of religious and non-religious beliefs, so that they can examine and explain how and why people express their beliefs in diverse ways; recognise and account for ways in which people put their beliefs into action and appreciate and appraise the significance of different ways of life and ways of expressing meaning.
3. Make connections between religious and non-religious beliefs, concepts, practices and ideas studied, so that they can evaluate, reflect on and enquire into key concepts and questions studied.
By the end of Year 6, children will have learnt about the major world religions and have an understanding of the beliefs which sit behind these.
