Religious Education Curriculum

Religious Education at Ark William Parker Academy

Religious Education at Ark William Parker uses the structure of engage, enquire, express and evaluate within its teaching and learning:

Engage: ‘hook’ the students by connecting the learning with the experience within the classroom.

Enquire: students are engaged by questioning - invited to explore more deeply with the enquiry - “Why is forgiveness so important for Christians?”

Express: A student makes their own responses individually or in groups to the story/questions/lesson content - identify and reflects upon the meaning.

Evaluate: students evaluate the impact and effect on individuals and society.

The department utilises a number of strategies for engaging students in their ability to follow The Four E’s of learning.
