Teaching the new RE syllabus in a Suffolk primary school
The new RE syllabus for Suffolk schools was introduced in September 2007. It includes Humanism and secular world views. The idea is that children should learn about religion and its alternatives, not to be religious, though the many church schools in the county do things differently. We’ll be visited by a teacher from a local county primary school, who’ll tell us about her approach.
I visited this school a couple of years ago to do an assembly and talk to the older children afterwards. They were very lively and open-minded.
We’ll be in the lounge at Pinewood Community Hall, Ipswich. For directions, see the map, and the notice of the May meeting in the calendar.
