RE leads meeting

Last Thursday RE leads from 4 of our schools met to moderate children’s work across a range of year groups. They also shared planning and it was very interesting to compare a church school to a non-church school’s approach with learning from both. One church school had set up a faith group of children who helped with the co-ordination of various activities in the school. These 6 children had worked with the RE lead over their time in school and it had helped them be very involved with school life. Schools were using classbooks as well as individual books to track children’s work and discussion on RE themes and ideas, as well as including trips and visits and using artifacts to stimulate lessons. In the Autumn the group will meet to work much more closely on assessment,as at the moment this is a challenge for many settings.
