Religious Studies

 

What we will do:

The Twickenham School RS Department will follow the whole school policy for curriculum provision. In addition to this, the RS department will also:

  • build on prior learning in key stages 1 and 2 in order to develop a life-long enthusiasm for learning about religion
  • teach a full GCSE course for those who choose the AQA RS Option (currently a Year 11 cohort)
  • encourage all students to consider further study of Religious Studies and entry to related careers post-16 and beyond
  • develop students’ interest of the impact of Religious expression in the wider world through activities such as visits from external organisations, visits to places of worship and house based whole school competitions.
  • provide weekly SACRED ( Spiritual And Cultural Reflective EDucation) tutor time slots on a Wednesday Year 10 and Friday Year 11
  • host and organise drop down Religious Studies workshops discovering and discussing cultural and religious expression topics

Specialist teaching

Years 7 to 11 will be taught by both experienced and dynamic RS staff who have experience grading for the AQA on collaboration with other Heads of RS within the Richmond Borough

All students have exercise books for RS, with Years 10 and 11 having separate books relating to each paper at GCSE if chosen at GCSE level.

All GCSE students have been provided 2 text books, Sikhism and Christianity, to loan for the course to develop home learning and exam preparation.

Setting in RS

All Year 7-9 and GCSE classes are taught as mixed ability groups.

Key stage 3 -Year 7 & 8

Twickenham School RS Department delivers key stage 3 across 2 years in years 7 -8. The curriculum fully complies with the national curriculum and is sequenced to ensure that topics are delivered in a logical way in order to develop and link students’ knowledge and skills.  Topics chosen link with Religious Calendar events as well as teacher planning consistency linked to all Year 7 and 8 being taught the same religion at the same time. This will aid combined assemblies and presentations/ visits. The curriculum is also being developed to ensure early introduction on knowledge and skills relevant to GCSE RS, for example, Christian and Sikhism beliefs. Assessments include Key Higher level command task extended writing challenges. E.g. To assess and evaluate a statement with context similar to GCSE level.

Year 9

In Year 9 students study a GCSE Transition course which covers the detail of the themes studied in the AQA GCSE Paper 3.  This both serves to complete the National Curriculum breath of coverage for RS as well as the opportunity to develop prior GCSE knowledge and understanding. Themes covered are sensitive and provide opportunities for empathy and reflection linked to PDC lessons and British values.

All Year 9 are given exercise books and use a combination of Key Stage 3 and 4 text books to support their learning.
