Smithdown School is made up of children who originate from many nationalities, cultures and faith groups. As a school we aim to celebrate this diversity and offer a welcoming and inclusive environment for all our pupils, including new arrivals and non-native English speakers. We believe that Religious Education (RE) provides an opportunity to celebrate and foster awareness of these differences within our school and the wider world. It is a subject that celebrates diversity.
- To help our children develop respect and sensitivity for all people
- To help our children understand faith and moral codes to guide them and develop informed opinions
- To help our children develop an understanding of modern multi-cultural Britain and how this is reflected in their lives and local community
- To help our children understand more about the importance of religion in today’s world.
We have been learning all about Easter celebrations this week. Today we tasted hot cross buns. They were so yummy! #smithdowneyfs #smithdownre @SmithdownPrimR
This afternoon for RE we have been looking at different artist depictions of The Last Supper. We have thought about our favourites, least favourites and why this artwork is important. #smithdownre #theartsatsmithdown @Artsmarkaward
I’m R.E today we were using role play to understand ‘temptation’. Is it good to be tempted? Or is it bad? We discussed both points of view by using the story of Adam and Eve to help us. #smithdownre
We celebrated Chinese New Year today by trying different Chinese food. We had spring rolls, noodles, prawn crackers and fortune cookies. #smithdowneyfs #smithdownre @SmithdownPrimR
Some fantastic performances on the glockenspiels this afternoon for RE and music! #smithdownre #smithdownmusic
This afternoon, we looked at the Genesis story from The Bible and composed our own music to accompany what was created in each day. #smithdownre #smithdownmusic
A great walk today with @UKMilSchool walking the route we had planned (using our mapping skills) to the cathedral around the beautiful, historic Georgian Quarter. #smithdowngeography #smithdownhistory #smithdownre
#smithdownre We managed to fit a visit to the cathedral into our walk today 👍
We’re having so much fun celebrating Chinese New Year this morning! We’re getting very good at using our fine motor skills to manipulate the chopsticks. #smithdowneyfs #smithdownre
