At Key Stage 2 pupils have a broader perspective on life’s experiences.
They can engage with concepts relating to their own and others’
experiences that are also evident in religions (A concepts), for example,
freedom, authority, sacrifice. They will continue to investigate concepts
that are common to many religions and that are used in the study of
religion (B concepts), for example, holiness, pilgrimage and rites of
passage. Through their study of religions pupils will encounter concepts
that are specific to particular religions (C concepts), for example, Trinity,
moksha, mitzvot.
