Religious Education Intent

Come and See Educational Programme

St. Peter’s follows the Come and See programme of Religious Education for Foundation and Key Stages 1 and 2, as recommended by the Archdioceses of Liverpool.

Come and See is developed through three themes which are gradually explored at greater depths: Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.

The process for delivering the topics in ‘Come and See’ has three stages – ‘Explore’, ‘Reveal’ and ‘Respond’.

Explore

‘Explore’ is the introduction to the topic where the children’s life experience is explored. The questions it raises are wondered at, shared, investigated and their significance reflected upon.

Reveal

‘Reveal’ is the heart of the programme where knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith is revealed through the Word, in Scripture, Tradition, doctrine, prayers, rites and Christian Living.

Respond

‘Respond’ is where the learning is assimilated, celebrated and responded to in daily life.

Religious Education Vocabulary

EYFS

In EYFS, the children produce a large class floor book to present their work, rather than having individual books. Their work is also uploaded to Tapestry. EYFS also have a topic page at the beginning of each new section of their floor book. Please see below for an example.

Come and See - Other Faiths

In the Come and See Programme, we also study two none Christian faiths per year. At St. Peter's, we focus on Judaism in the Autumn term and Islam in the Spring term. Please see the PDFs below for more information on what each year group focuses on.

Collective Worship Intent

At St. Peter’s the intent of the daily act of Collective Worship is viewed as an integral and important part of school life. Through this and in the general ethos of the school we seek to promote our mission statement and motto ‘Let your light shine’. It is a time where we come together to share our love of God based on promoting the Catholic Christian values which permeate the ethos of the school. We aim to provide opportunities for all members of the school community to stop activity to:

  • pause and to reflect on important issues,
  • foster a sense of awe and wonder at the beauty, mystery and power of the natural world,
  • build up the sense of group identity, fostering concern for the needs of each other,
  •  give pupils the experience of being still or silent,
  • provide an opportunity for celebrating times of success or joy,
  • provide an opportunity for meeting at times of sadness or sorrow,
  • provide an opportunity for highlighting and reflecting upon core school values – such as striving to be honest and truthful, trying hard in all things, respecting oneself as well as other people, striving to be fair and just;
  • offer the opportunity to mark significant points in the year, such as festivals and school events.

As such, the contributions of staff, pupils, church clergy and other visitors are highly valued in our school.
