CREATIVITY IN RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Religious Education is a core subject and we like to get creative when teaching it. Our teachers like to explore delivering the ‘Come and See’  RE programme through music, art, dance and drama.

For RE we follow the ‘Come and See’ Catholic Primary Religious Education Programme.

This was introduced in 2012 to replace ‘Here I Am’.

This is an extensive programme which covers a range of challenging themes from EYFS up to Year 6. Each theme is divided up into the following sections:

  • Explore
  • Reveal
  • Respond

At the end of each theme, the children reflect on what they have learnt through class liturgies.

The scheme covers the themes:

  • Domestic Church
  • Baptism/Confirmation
  • Advent/Christmas
  • Local Church
  • Eucharist
  • Lent/Easter
  • Pentecost
  • Reconciliation
  • Universal Church

Newsletters are sent home termly giving information about what the children are learning in school.

Big Questions are used to encourage children to make the curriculum more compelling.
