Religious Education at the Duke of Norfolk School enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. Lessons primarily focus on the Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions, allowing children to learn about religion as well as from religion.
Religious Education lessons are undertaken in an environment where it is safe to ask questions, to debate and to come to your own conclusions. They promote creativity by exploring themes through drama and role-play, music and art. They enable children to see the world through a differing range of viewpoints and encourage them to celebrate diversity in society.
Our Year 6's were lucky enough to have Mr Ellison and Sandy visit from St James' church to discuss their transition to secondary school. The children were able to think about how their faith might help them overcome tricky situations and have an open discussion about how they would deal with different scenarios - even learning how to tie a tie! Our Year 6 pupils were able to take a lot away from this workshop with Mr Ellison and are very thankful for him and Sandy coming in to speak to them.
