St Thomas More Catholic Primary School

Love one another as I have loved you

Religious Education

 

 

It is recognised at St Thomas More School that Religious Education is central to all we do. Pupils are helped to

develop an understanding of Catholic values and doctrines and they are encouraged to participate in the life of the Parish.

DIOCESE THEME FOR 2018-19: "CATHOLIC SCHOOLS: CALLED TO BE A FAMILY OF FAMILIES"

The theme has been chosen to follow on from the World Meeting of Families in Dublin in August, to share the aims of that meeting in the light of Pope Francis' encyclical Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love). The theme will present a special opportunity for school families to celebrate, not only the fact that parents are the primary educators of their children, but also the vital role that Catholic schools play in assisting parents.

The theme will rely on materials created by the Irish church's schools' steering committee for last year, and will invite schools to reflect on and celebrate the relationship that exists between home, school and parish through participation in four sub-themed catechetical moments. 

Information for these 4 moments will be shared throughout the year and linked to activities in school and through homework.

 

Moment One:  Families of Hope    (November 2018)

Moment Two: Families of Faith   (January 2019)

Moment Three: Families of Love  (Lent 2019)

Moment Four: Families of Joy  (April/May 2019)

Other Faiths 

The children are taught to value and respect other religious beliefs through in-depth study of other world faiths.

Two other faiths are covered each year and different classes will teach different faiths. All classes will teach Judaism each year as required by the Come & See RE scheme.

Over a 3 year period the four main other faiths will be taught. A child who enters school in Reception and remains in school until end of Y6 will be taught each major other faith 4 times.
