The following 2 articles chronologically document and chart our Primary RE benchmarks learning journey; a journey that began in May 2016.
Our Primary RE benchmarks learning journey flowed out of requests from teachers who were engaged in the Year 4 online RE assessment research/professional research/learning project.
Ongoing discussion with members of the Years 1-4 Online RE Assessment project’s writing parties and other DRSs and RE teachers turned to the desirability of developing and publishing curriculum benchmarks.
The aim of such benchmarks is to make visible for teachers of RE in Years 0-4 the required syllabus coverage in a format that is readily understandable.
Such benchmarks will, hopefully, assist RE teachers in ensuring all relevant material has been covered throughout Years 0-4 and our students are well prepared for the online RE assessment research project process.
