From January 2021, Homerswood Primary School will be following a new RE Scheme of work called Discovery RE.
This scheme maps itself to the Herts agreed syllabus for RE and supports British values.
The scheme focuses on an enquiry based approach to learning and covers spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It aims to develop critical thinking skills, subject knowledge and understanding and the children's own spiritual development.
Children will be encouraged to reflect on their own beliefs and values whilst acknowledging that others may have beliefs different from their own.
The children learn about Christianity, in each year group, as well as focusing on at least one other religion.
Where possible we visit different places of worship and invite visitors of different faiths into school.
The whole school participate in services at a local church for Christmas, Easter and Harvest.
Year 5 Trip to the Synagogue

The Servant Queen
On Thursday 23rd June Selina Evans and two parishioners (Mary and Katie) from St John's Church visited Homerswood School.
Selina talked to the children during assembly and told them stories about Queen Elizabeth II. Each child was given a booklet called "The Servant Queen" which celebrated the Queen's 90th birthday.
