At Sowerby Village RE is a key aspect of the curriculum, with each class completing one session of RE a week. Every class is assigned an alternative religion for them to compare to Christianity throughout their units of work. Below is an example of the RE curriculum your children will study throughout their time at Sowerby Village.
Year 6 Footsteps Activity Day at St Johns Church, Cragg Vale
Our Year 6 pupils took part in a Footsteps Activity Day in June at St John’s Church, Cragg Vale. The event focused on the life of The Rev Thomas Crowther, Vicar of Cragg Vale 1821 – 1859. Together with others he worked to get the hours children laboured in the mills reduced, which ultimately culminated in the Ten Hours Act of Parliament. During the day children had the opportunity to investigate Crowther’s life & faith through workshops, craft, drama and songs. The day linked in with RE and both social and local history aspects of the curriculum.
Here is a lovely thank you card from the Footsteps Team to our children!
