Religious Education at Milford Junior School

During their time at Milford, the children will learn about the main world religions of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and non-religious world views of Humanism. We use the Somerset agreed syllabus (Awareness, Mystery and Value) to form the basis of the children’s learning.

Lessons are usually based around an enquiry question which is explored through the use of videos, artefacts, studying sacred stories, meeting religious leaders, visiting places of worship or class discussion. The children are encouraged to develop their own thinking, recognise other people’s viewpoints and give and explain their own ideas in response to these questions. These skills and knowledge will give the children the opportunity to develop respect and understanding for different cultures and beliefs to support them as they grow older.
