Religious Education is at the core of our curriculum, allowing us to develop children's religious literacy, knowledge and understanding of their faith. We follow the 'Come and See' RE scheme of work. 'Come and See' is the response Jesus gave the disciples when they asked 'Where do you live?' (John 1:39) The RE curriculum is therefore based on the truth revealed by God about ourselves, our life together and our ultimate destiny with God.
Our RE curriculum follows three themes, which are explored at different stages throughout the year. They include: Church, Sacrament and Christain Living.
Church - These themes take place each season time and each theme gradually on the children's prior learning from the previous topic. Children will explore 'Family', 'Local community' and 'Universal Church' within this topic.
Sacrament - Children will learn about Baptism (KS1), Confirmation (KS2), Ordination (KS2) Marriage (KS2) and the Eucharist.
Christian Living - Children will learn about Advent (celebrating life), Lent and Easter (the cost of life) and Pentecost (feasts to celebrate).
At the heart of our RE curriculum are our 'Big Questions', which ultimately drive the learning of the topic. These questions remain open ended and challenging, providing children with opportunities to engage with the deepest questions of life, encouraging pupil collaboration, discussion and reflection. Children are exposed to the mystery of God, the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Church, lives of Saints and the relationship between faith and life.
