Religious Education at St Willibrords
Overview of the Academic Year
2017 - 2018
Here at St. Willibrord’s we currently follow the Come and See programme of Religious Education. The aim of this programme is to explore the religious dimensions of questions about life, dignity and purpose within the Catholic tradition. Alongside this, we have set aside dedicated time to follow the 'Caritas in Action' programme which looks at the social teachings of the church
Each year group from EYFS to Year 6 have their own list of focus topics to cover throughout the academic year all linked by a central theme. The topics will coincide with the church calendar however, the depth in which the topic is explored is dependent upon the respective age of the child.
Each topic is split into 3 sections-
Explore-Children learn through shared experiences and make connections between their life experiences and their friends.
Reveal-At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.
Respond-Children remember and celebrate what they have learnt and apply their knowledge individually.
At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition. It also allows children to search, to explore, to discover, and to respond; this is part of what it is to be human. Children learn through shared experience and make connections between life’s experiences and the gospel teachings.
Underpinning all that we do in our school is our mission to
Grow in God
whilst asking the question:
“What would Jesus do?”
