R.E.

                     God wants me to be the best me I can be in 

                         Religious Education.....

 

The exciting things that I will learn in R.E at St. Joseph's:

 

In R.E at St. Joseph's, we follow a programme called "Come and See". Pupils will learn about the Catholic faith, stories and litugy from Bible and other faiths. 

 

As part of our R.E curriculum, the children will also study the following religions:

 

  • Judaism
  • Hinduism
  • Islam
  • Sikhism 

 

The exciting things that will take place in R.E:

 

  • Examining artefacts from other faiths.
  • Visits to places of worship.
  • Visitors that represent other faiths.
  • Lessons outside in our worship/well-being area.
  • Role-play and productions.
  • Rhema Theatre visits at Easter.
  • Themed religious days: art, scripture, wood work, baking. 

 

Why do I need to know this?

 

Religious Education in our school is at the centre of everything we do, it develops the whole child, by encouraging spiritual and religious development and developing the ability to reflect and make judgements. At St Joseph’s RC Primary School Religious Education offers us the living experience of faith through our distinctive Catholic nature.
