on how their faith should affect their actions in their everyday lives.
Religious Education is taught using the ‘Come and See’ scheme of work, making links to the Religious Education Curriculum Directory. This scheme of work has been developed to meet the needs of children today in their faith journey and to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles. It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of religious education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels of Attainment and the Religious Education Curriculum Directory.
At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self revelation of love through Jesus Christ.
‘Come and See’ is based on the four Constitutions of the Second Vatican Council:
Revelation: God Speaks – finding meaning in life
Church: Christ is the light of the nations – Community of Earth
Christian Living; Joy and Hope – Way of life
Sacraments: Liturgy: Celebration – celebration in symbol and ritual
‘Come and See’ has been developed through three themes based around their Constitutions. The themes are gradually explored at greater depth – they are Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.
Teachers use the new assessment framework to plan for key skills, thus ensuring progression throughout the school. RE is taught through individual RE lessons but it is also interwoven through the whole range of subjects taught throughout the school.
