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.

We follow the “Come and See” programme of Religious Education from F2 to Year 6.
The children are taught to value and respect other religious beliefs through in-depth study of other world faiths. We aim to teach children about loving human relationships developmentally alongside the Science curriculum, and within a framework of Religious Education.
Y5 Lenten Retreat Day
In March our Y5 class were visited by the Hallam Youth Ministry Team to take part in a Lenten Retreat Day. Our Lenten Retreat Day gave us the opportunity to work together while exploring and reflecting on the season of Lent. We reflected on the Stations of the Cross, the 3 themes of Lent (prayer, fasting, almsgiving), how to prepare for Easter and the Year of Mercy. We were encouraged to actively think about what we are doing during this Lenten season. We prepared a whole school liturgy based around what we explored during the day. We were even able to write our own prayers and readings for the assembly.
Please watch the video below to see how we got on!
