Religious Education and World Views
R.E. Lead - Mrs Birchall
At Button Lane, Religious Education and World Views encourages our children to learn and explore their own and the beliefs of others. This subject broadens their vision, develops and deepens their knowledge about world views.
Religious Education and World Views promotes opportunities to ask challenging questions about the world in which we live and creates a safe place for the children to question their own and the views of others.
At Button Lane, we believe that our children should understand, appreciate and care about others and the diverse and ever changing world that we live in. From this, children can form a strong basis about their own beliefs, ideas and values, being proud of their identity, while respecting the right of others to differ.
It is our aim that all the children experience important traditions and customs from world religions, where they can visit places of worship or learn from members of the community.

Year 4 and 5 thoroughly enjoyed learning about Mahatma Gandhi through a fantastic workshop.
World Religion Day
To help explore our article of the month, 'Article 14: Your right to follow your own religion' we celebrate World Religion Day. This year, joined by parents, we started off with a whole school assembly where we explored the 6 largest faiths. In class, we explored World Religion Day further and each child created a reflective hand print about themselves which we used to create a display that celebrates our similarities and differences.
