At Oakfield, we aim to develop the children's knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths. All children will have respect for other people's views and will celebrate the diversity in our society.
The aims of Religious Education are to help children:
- develop an awareness of spiritual and moral issues in life experiences
- develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major world religions and value systems found in Britain
- develop an understanding of what it means to be committed to a religious tradition
- be able to reflect on their own experiences and to develop a personal response to the fundamental questions of life
- develop an understanding of religious traditions and to appreciate the cultural differences in Britain today
- develop investigative and research skills and to enable them to make reasoned judgements about religious issues
- have respect for other peoples’ views and to celebrate the diversity in society.
Religious Education is delivered through the Discovery R.E. scheme of work which allows the children to access a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the requirements of Halton’s Agreed Syllabus.
Oakfield visits St. Michael's Church every Harvest, Christmas and Easter time. We really enjoy the services and love learning new songs to sing at Church.
A huge thank you are well to all the children and their families who helped raise £306.71 for The Children's Society during our Christingle Service.
