Term 1 - Experts in Knowledge 

 Intent:

The purpose of the school’s spiral curriculum is to ensure that children will build upon knowledge of the diverse range of religions, learning new skills each year while revisiting the six main world religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.

Throughout lessons, children will learn to appreciate the diverse world that they live in, exploring cultures and traditions of different religions and communities.

Children will ask and answer questions about religious views and beliefs that are derived from the Kent agreed syllabus tailored to each year group within each key stage; most religious topics have been generated to mold in line with the big questions. Children are challenged to think about their opinions and views, feeling confident to discuss and debate their ideas.
