At Mangotsfield CofE Primary School our pupils learn about the Christian faith through our agreed syllabus ‘Understanding Christianity’.
Our aim is for our children to develop their own thinking and understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it. As a church school, the main focus of our RE curriculum is Christianity (60%). However, we also reflect on and celebrate festivals from other faiths and cultures. This is to ensure that all children develop an understanding of the multi - faith society we live in. Our pupils are engaged with activities such as; drama, art, debates, outdoor exploration & still time, which allow them to gain a deeper understanding of Christian belief and practice. They explore the significant theological concepts within Christianity as part of developing their wider religious, theological and cultural literacy.
Our Mangotsfield pupils Coral & Koji support the Infant children in learning about the Christian faith through sharing their knowledge and experience of Christianity during our RE lessons.
Here are some examples of work based on exploring Creation.
