‘Be The Best You Can Be’

Religious Education


The purpose of R.E is captured in the main principle of the Manchester Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education 2016- 2021. The principle aim of R.E is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own. The threefold aim of the R.E Manchester Agreed Syllabus elaborates the principle aim. The curriculum for R.E aims to ensure that all pupils:

 Know about and understand a range of religious and worldviews.
Express ideas and insights about the nature, significance and impact of religions and worldviews.
Gain and deploy the skills needed to engage seriously with religions and worldviews.


At Moston Lane Community Primary School these skills are embedded within the R.E curriculum and are developed over time. We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of religions and worldviews and that they are able to use their knowledge confidently to express their own ideas and opinions in lots of religious topics and enquiry-based questions. We want our children at Moston Lane to enjoy R.E, to be creative and express themselves with spiritual and religious ideas. The skills taught across R.E at Moston Lane prepares children for life, to develop as global citizens, to learn different ways of life and develop empathy and understanding of different religions around the world.  


Here you can find the 'Age Related Expectations' for each year group, which outlines what skills a child should be able to do at the end of each year. Children will be assessed against these expectations to see what they have achieved, and what they need to work on next.

Religious Education around our school

Harvest Celebration

Over the last few weeks, the whole school have been working hard for a team competition to fill up their Harvest box! Each team brought their box into the hall for our assembly and the amount of food we collected for local food banks was fantastic! Miss Rowland led an assembly all about Harvest, comparing a typical day of food in UK and another in Sudan, it made us think very hard about how lucky we are. We also looked at what type of foods are grown here in the UK. Thanks again to everyone who brought something in for our collection, it was our best one yet!

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 1

This half term, children in Year 1 have looked at different religions and their places of worship. To further their learning, the children got to look at different religious artefacts. This helped them to develop an understanding of what is used in different places of worship and what some of the signs and symbols of religions mean too.
