At St. Cuthbert’s Christ is at the centre of everything we do and therefore RE can be seen everywhere from in the classroom to outside on the playground. It is the focal point of our Curriculum and sows the seed for all of the children’s other learning through the use of an Enquiry Question and Concept Words.
We aim to grow children who live their lives rooted in the Catholic values of Faith, Hope, Trust and Love as well as living their lives mirrored in reflection of Jesus Christ. Through the Pope's Laudato Si message, we aim to ensure children don't want to grow to have more, but to be more. At St. Cuthbert's, the Laudato Si is weaved through everything we do to ensure that children want to be active members of society who promote God's message and to live their lives rooted with a firm moral compass to guide them to make good choices based on their Catholic faith.
Each class has its own prayer table and reflection area. It also has a working wall that display the vocabulary from the current unit, along with the correct liturgical colour and any learning that may help the children progress through the unit of work. Key questions are placed on the wall for the children to wonder about, or to answer if they wish.
