RE

The Intent of the RE Curriculum at Holy Family

At Holy Family, we provide our children with a religious education that encourages understanding of others and the world around them, providing opportunities for children to ask questions and learn about Christainity. We aim for religious education lessons and experiences to be unlike any other in school to create the opportunity for not only learning about the Catholic Faith, but also awe, wonder, reverence and spirituality in a creative way. 

 

We are committed to valuing and respecting every individual as being created special and unique, in the likeness and image of God. We learn about God's love and explore our Christain responsibilities, so our children can learn about their unique place within the home, school and parish community. 

 

We learn about and explore Catholic and Christain traditions, alongside traditions from other faith backgrounds, so we can develop an understanding and respect for all and the world around us. Visits and hands on experiences allow opportunities for children to explore and understand religions and their traditions and experience them for themselves.

Year 1: To the Ends of the Earth: Pentecost

First, we acted out the story of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was fully revealed.

We created an obstacle course and blindfolded a volunteer to follow instructions to reach the other side. The volunteer had to listen carefully so they don’t trip or bump into things. We then talked about how this is like listening to the Holy Spirit’s voice. After, we sent another person through the obstacle course with lots of people giving instructions at once. We discussed that this teaches us to follow one voice as opposed to many other “voices” that might influence our lives. We then created a symbol of the Holy Spirit and attached some of the virtues to live by.

Year 1: To the Ends of the Earth: Jesus' Story

Jesus’ Story Part 1 and 2

After discussing a sequencing ‘Sam’s life’, children discussed the life events of Jesus that they have previously learnt. The children then created a board game ordering these events. Children then took turns using the microphones to retell Jesus’ life.

 

The children played ‘What’s in the Box?’ to guess the next events we are discussing for Jesus’ life. Children completed their board games by adding final set of events. Some children challenged themselves by adding the names of the events and further details. Children finished the lesson by playing their game.

Year 1: Celebration of the Word

Year 1 shared a lovely celebration of the word this week. First, we gathered quietly into a circle, made the sign of the cross on our foreheads and saying our afternoon prayer. We began by reading our word: “Dear Children, let us not love with words or speech but with action and in truth”. We reflected on these words and discussed what they meant. Lucy made a great inference by saying we need to not just say something; we need to prove it like in Maths. We talked about things we could do to show love and everyone had some great ideas. We then discussed sharing love by sharing a special meal. We chatted about how we shared special meals over the Easter holidays and why the meal was specials. Finally, our mission is to remember to thank God for our day and say sorry for a time we have not lived out his message. We reflected back to our word and agreed that the next day we would take action to prove this.
