Religious Education

Religious Education at Burlington allows children to share their experiences and learn from one another as well as the religions and beliefs represented across our school. We aim to support children to develop positive attitudes of respect towards people of all faiths and none and to develop religious literacy, so they may speak about religion and belief in informed and respectful ways.


Nursery and Reception

Children in Reception have been exploring festivals at different times of the year. We have been discussing why these are special times for people of different religions. Over the year, the children explore Christian festivals as well as Diwali and Eid. Most recently the children in Reception looked at why Easter is special for Christians.


Year 1

In Year 1, the children look at Christianity and the Muslim faith. They have recently been exploring ‘Who do Christians say made the world’ and ‘Why does Easter matter to Christians.’ Take a look at some of their amazing work.


Year 2

In Year 2, the children continue to look at further aspects of the Christian faith and also explore the Jewish faith. They also discuss and explore why some places are sacred to believers and how we should care for the world and others.  They have recently enjoyed looking at lots of different artefacts from the Jewish faith.
