Religious Education

EYFS/Key Stage 1

We will be looking at why Easter matters to Christians and why Christians put a cross in an Easter garden. We will also focus on how Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead, giving people hope and a new way of life and how he showed he was willing to forgive, even his own crucifixtion. Our core theological values are: hope, wisdom, forgiveness and compassion.

Key Stage 2

Our topic for this term is the events of Holy week eg the last supper and the culmination of Jesus’s earthly life leading up to his death and resurrection. We will ask why Christians call the day Jesus died ‘Good Friday?’ We will consider how Christians today trust that Jesus really did rise from the dead and is alive today. We will also focus on how Christians remember and celebrate Jesus’s last week, his death and resurrection. Our core values are: hope, humility and courage.
