In Early Years, children begin to develop prerequisite skills  for R.E by accessing the specific area of learning – Understanding of the World -People, Culture and Communities. Children will know the similarities and differences between different religious and cultural communities in this country drawing on their experiences and what has been read in class. They recognise that children have different beliefs and celebrate special times in different ways. This is closely linked to the prime area Personal Social and Emotional Development – Building Relationships strand, thinking about the perspectives of others and showing sensitivity to their own and others needs.


In EYFS, this is implemented through:


Direct teaching – e.g Jigsaw, PSHE Matters



Assemblies – whole school and class

Role play and small world

Stories and books

Music from other cultures

Festivals and celebrations
