At Manor Field we follow the agreed syllabus Living Difference. The purpose of religious education is to support students in developing their own coherent patterns and values and principles, and to support their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
This entrails encouragement of each student to interpret and respond to a variety of concepts, beliefs and practices within religions and to their own and others’ cultural and life experiences.
We believe it is important that students progressively develop the capacities to interpret, evaluate and respond to differing values and beliefs. This can be achieved through extending their thinking and analytical skills and their creative, imaginative and emotional development.
This half term we have been looking at Harvest, linking with the Living Difference III syllabus "Thankfulness" and "Bread as a symbol".
Each Year group looked at being thankful and what harvest means. Every lunch time we have a grace which we always say together.
"Thank you for the food we eat,
Thank you for the friends we meet.
Thank you for our work and play,
Thank you for this happy day"
We visited Christ the King Church for a Harvest Festival service with Revd Alison Bennett. The children took food produce for the local food bank.
