Our Religious Education contributes towards our We CARE vision, which holistically embodies our Christian and British values. It enables children to explore and discover the world around them, having respect for other cultures and diversity.
Through a hands-on, inquiry-based curriculum, children will ask questions and explore religions and beliefs from around the world. It ensures children have the opportunities to explore their own Spiritual, Moral and Cultural identity.
Our curriculum engages learners by demonstrating the relevance of Religious Education in tackling local and global challenges. In an ever-changing world, at MOSPS we encourage the children to be reflective thinkers and show care and understanding towards all global citizens - aspiring for a kinder world.
Real-life experiences are a fundamental part of our approach that motivates learners to deepen and expand their knowledge. Through regular worships, trips, visits and our link with a school in Nepal, children are given the opportunity to reflect and widen their knowledge of themselves and others.
InterFaith Week 2022 - One Big Community
This week in school children have been celebrating Interfaith week with the theme ‘One Big Community’. Interfaith Week begins on Remembrance Sunday because when we remember, we look back but it is also a place from which to look forward and reflect on how to work together for a peaceful and just world. The children were shown this Jo Cox quote ‘We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us’ and asked to produce a piece of artwork to show how we are all united and ‘One Big Community.’ Here are some examples:
Y3/4 were looking at the concept of belonging in Hinduism.
We looked at how families come together for Raksha Bandhan and you make rakhis to give to a relative (usually a brother or sister) who they want to belong with and protect.
