To provide children with the knowledge they need to look after their own physical and mental health, safety and wellbeing now and in the future. To enable children to develop an understanding of the world around them and to know that the choices they make have consequences. To prepare children for their lives as adults. This includes developing their social and communication skills as well as an understanding of the different types of relationships they may form and to recognise what is and is not a positive relationship.
To enable children to learn about and experience elements of world religions, tradition and culture. To discover what their personal beliefs and values are and to question any stereotypical or fixed ideas they may have. To become respectful, polite and tolerant members of society. RE is also an opportunity for children to quietly reflect, think and develop a sense of awe and wonder.
We are lucky enough to be one of only a few schools in North Tyneside to be a 'Phunky Foods' school. 'Phunky foods' is a set of classroom and online resources which support learning about healthy lifestyles. Some of the topics covered are physical exercise, healthy eating and healthy minds. During the coronavirus pandemic Phunky Foods have created some free home learning resources that children can access with their families at home.
Every Monday on their website (see link below) you will be able to access a healthy eating activity, some fun exercise ideas, some simple recipes and some activities to help you unwind and relax. Simply click the link below, scroll down the page, then click on the olive green 'home learning worksheets' tab. (You do not need to register) Finally, click on the key stage your child is in to access a variety of activities.
The links below have various RE activities you can complete at home. The activities cover the different world religions covered by the scheme of work we follow in school.
All activities are provided by NATRE (National Association of Teachers of Religious Education).
In November 2019 we successfully retained our 'Healthy School' status. We are very proud of this achievement as since we were last awarded the status 2 years ago, additional criteria has been added to the application process. As a school we received some very positive feedback from the panel. Well done everyone!
