Pupil Voice - Religious Education

based on RE teaching and learning Autumn 2015 to end of Spring 1 2016.

Thank you to Mrs Rodway who has collated our 'Pupil Voice' on the teaching and learning of RE across school.

It is lovely to see that RE is engaging our children, that they are taught through many different teaching and learning strategies and that the children are able to talk their learning.
