Moston Lane

Community Primary School

‘Be The Best You Can Be’

Religious Education


At Moston Lane, we learn R.E through the new Manchester Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education that was introduced this academic year (2016). It is taught through key questions rather than religions, giving the opportunity to learn many religions at once but also through different topics and other subjects.

We also celebrate R.E. as a whole school, through celebration assemblies, fundraising competitions, plays and performances. We are also very fortunate as we are always looking for visitors to come into the school to talk and work with the children but also to go on R.E trips to different religious buildings too!


Here is the "R.E Curriculum Map", which outlines the key questions that are covered and taught throughout the year.



For Harvest, Moston Lane worked with a local Manchester charity, Woodstreet Mission, to provide donations to their harvest appeal. Each class were given a box to use as a collection for their tinned food, as a mini competition to help provide food for local families who struggle, particularly during the school holidays. Well done to all the classes that brought food in for Woodstreet!

We were also lucky enough to be visited by David Saville, the vicar from Chadderton Community Church, who came in to talk to us about the importance of Harvest. He highlighted the importance of being thankful for what we have through a fun and exciting game-based assembly. Thank you, David! 


 As part of Nursery and Reception’s fundraising during the Autumn term, the children decided to participate in Harvest related activities! The children made and sold chocolate apples for £1 to raise money for their year group. The yummy chocolate apples were made and decorated by the children - they looked fab!

RE Trips

Year 2's trip to St John's Church in Moston

Year 6 'Torn Away' Project

Year 6 had an exciting afternoon with Caroline from the Holocaust Day Trust, who came in to do some History, RE and Art activities based on the Holocaust. This tied in really well for Year 6 as they had been focusing on World War 2. They learnt about the Holocaust from the perspective of the children in the war and being “torn away” from home. This “Torn Away” project really engaged the children through group work with RE and History activities, as well as going onto creating a piece of artwork. This art was then exhibited at Manchester Library at a special art event. The Lord Mayor, High Sheriff and a Holocaust survivor attended this event and looked at our artwork along with some from other schools too.

Year 2's trip to the Manchester Buddhist Centre

Year 2 went on a trip to the Manchester Buddhist Centre after catching a public bus from school. They spent time in the Buddhist Centre learning more about Buddhist beliefs, as well as trying out some meditation and breathing exercises. They listened to Janet (a Buddhist leader at the centre) tell them about her Buddhist daily life and stories about Buddha. They had a chance to try out some exercises on prayer mats, ring the special bell and look at special Buddhist artefacts such as the prayer wheel.
