Early Years Foundation Stage


For EYFS the approach is Thematic – topics are based upon children’s own lives and experiences, and introduce pupils to Christianity, and other religions and beliefs represented within their own class and / or school.

  • The RE syllabus for EYFS is presented as six ‘topics’ each exploring one of the key questions and building understanding of core concepts (specialness, celebration and belonging) from both the child’s and a religious point of view
  • These topics will be taught in line with the DfEs EYFS Profile (Development Matters): learning in RE should start from the child’s own experience & from within the EYFS curriculum and through planned, purposeful play, with a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities
