The basis of our teaching of Religious Education is "The Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education", but like all secular subjects it is often integrated into project work of the class. In this the thematic approach is ideal. The starting point is the child himself building on his experience and growing awareness of himself, his relations with others and with the natural world.
"If children are to develop an understanding of religion there are certain skills and capacities which have to be developed. Exploration of experience depends on a developing awareness of self, other people and the natural world, and an ability to respond”. The skills necessary for understanding religion are the same as those in other areas of the curriculum.
On Monday 11th November at 11 a.m. the children of Beckermet stopped and remembered.
The children created their own poppies and respectfully laid them on our focal point in hope for a world of peace.
The children reflected on their hopes and as a school we created a living poppy of hope made up of all of our children.
We joined together with our friends and family to celebrate our harvest festival. Maximus the mouse even joined us as harvest is his favourite celebration.
At this time of year we give thanks to God for our harvest of life.

This Lent in our school we are going to try and make a difference:
We will GIVE by cutting out something we enjoy, giving our time to others or offering our help and support
We will ACT by cutting out actions that harmful to our world
We will PRAY by taking 5 minutes out of our day to pray for all our friends and families in our homes, community and world.
