Religious Education Update
At Northside, Religious Education (RE) plays an important role in the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child. We are a multicultural school where all faiths are celebrated and respected. RE is taught through discreet lessons, assemblies, visits and visitors to the school. Read the curriculum map to find out what is taught in each year group.
We are in the process of creating more links with secondary schools, so that older pupils can come into Northside to share stories and traditions from their religions. We hope to arrange for students from Queen Elizabeth’s Boys school to come in throughout the summer term.
Each year group will arrange trips to religious places of worship throughout the year. Year 3 visited St Mary’s Church, where they had a tour of the Church and were able to ask questions. They will also be visiting the North Finchley Mosque and Year 4 will be visiting the Neasden Temple in the Spring term. We have also had visits from a Reverend Philip from St Mary’s in Finchley and Rabbi Miriam this term. We would love more representatives from different religions to share stories and traditions. If you have any contacts we could make links with, please email the office with this information.
It would also be great for parents and carers to come in to talk about and celebrate your beliefs with the children at Northside, please contact the school office if you would like to come in.
