The school follows the RE Agreed Syllabus for Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton 2012-2017.
RE is learning about the religions of the world and learning from them. The religions studied and discussed at Edward Peake are Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Judaism, Humanism and of course, Christianity. We also delve into the areas of agnosticsm and atheism and why people think in different ways about God and the world.
In Keystage 3, you will be able to discuss some moral and theological questions, such as ‘Who made my jeans?’ and ‘What do people say about God and the Universe?’
The approach to lessons in RE is varied and includes discussion, drama, artwork, sorting games, presentations, posters and speeches, just to name a few. We try out the practical elements of worship in different faiths, such as wudu. Visits to places of worship and by visiting speakers will be arranged to link in with topics in each year group.
We don’t have all the answers in RE lessons, but you are given the opportunity to find out for yourself what the world is about and discuss those burning questions like ‘Why am I here?’ and ‘What’s wrong with the world?
