EYFS: Beginning to learn about religions among children in the class.
KS1: Beginning to learn about Christianity/Sikhism/Islam.
KS2: Learning more about Christianity/Sikhism/Islam and beginning to learn about Hinduism/Judaism.
EYFS: Children in the EYFS should encounter religious and non-religious worldviews through special people, books, times, places and objects and by visiting places of worship. They should listen to and talk about stories, including key stories from different religions. Children can be introduced to subject-specific words and use all their senses to explore beliefs, practices and forms of expression. They ask questions and reflect on their own feelings and experiences. They use their imagination and curiosity to develop their appreciation of, and wonder at, the world in which they live.

Observe, notice and recognise simple aspects of religions in my own community in R.E.

Y2: Identify beliefs, describe them simply and give examples of religious materials. Suggest meanings for religious stories, objects or practices.

We had a harvest festival day on Thursday 8th October.
We collected money to donate to Tipton Food Bank (as we were unable to donate food this year).
Classes had discussions about what harvest is all about & why we donated this money.
EYFS also participated in harvest related activities such as making split pin scarecrows and sorting out harvest produce. We also learnt a harvest song (see below).
We will also be celebrating:
- Bonfire day
- Remembrance day
in the coming weeks.
