Our aim is to help children grow in the awareness that God loves each one of us, that we need to learn to love him and that we show our love for him by helping one another. Children need constant help to relate what they are learning to their own lives. There will be opportunities to help them understand what it means to be part of a family and that we all belong to God’s family. Incidents in the daily life of the classroom and playground will provide opportunities for children to experience the love and care of adults. They will then be able to help children to understand that God is our Father in heaven and to think about what this means for us. It is essential to start with the children’s experience, explore it, build on it and then connect it to the religious content. We learn about and from the catholic faith.
We use the RE scheme The Way, the Truth and The Life.
