RE – curriculum information

At Pearson Primary School, the teaching of Religious Education (RE) is based upon the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) scheme of work. There are termly units for each year group, which are progressive and each have an overarching key question to investigate, encouraging the children to ask questions, draw conclusions, evaluate and reflect while respecting the religions of others.

During Key Stage 1 the children are given the opportunity to study Christianity and Islam.  Whilst in Key stage 2 the children continue to study Christianity and Islam in further detail and at least 2 other Religions.

The school has links to the Methodist community through Deacon Sue Langdale and to the local Muslim community through Pearson Park Mosque. RE lessons are further enhanced through visits to places of worship, visitors and resources to develop their knowledge of ‘cultural diversity’.

The ERYC scheme can be viewed in detail via this link http://www.eriding.net/all-ages/religious-education/

Pearson Primary School has gone above and beyond the realms of every day teaching and learning in this challenging year. Thank you to the wonderful staff for all they do, both seen and unseen. Our child is happy, inspired, challenged, supported and making progress - what more could we ask for?

I would like to express my gratitude to the extent the school supports the festival of Eid Ul Adha. Not only by allowing the children a day to celebrate with their families but also by celebrating these events in the school as well.

I have had a lovely afternoon hearing the Year 1 children read so thank you. I was so impressed with the calmness and maturity of the children.

I have full faith in Mrs Clarkson and her wonderful team. They have bent over backwards over the past year to make sure my daughter has an education and I know they will continue to do so. They are amazing and I am so great full for their support for my child throughout the lockdowns. They have exceeded my expectations as they always go the extra mile.
