At Oldmixon Primary School, we use a framework called Discovery RE from Nursery to year 6, which is an enquiry based approach to Religious Education. As a school, we cover Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism to deliver challenging and engaging RE lessons. Christianity is taught in every year group with Christmas and Easter given fresh treatment each year, developing children's learning in a progressive way. Each RE topic has a theme, an over arching key question and a specific focus on a religion. The RE enquiry begins with an engagement lesson, followed by a series of investigation lessons before moving onto an evaluation lesson. Finally, the children engage in an expression lesson where they are encouraged to express what they have learned in a creative way.
In addition to this, we also have themed mornings where we celebrate various religious festivals such as Diwali and Chinese New Year. These often include a round robin of activities within key stages.
This year our Harvest celebrations were led by the Rev Patrick Webb. We have collected tinned and non-perishables for Weston Foodbank.
