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.

This October the Catholic Church around the world will observe an Extraordinary Month of Mission. The EMM is an initiative of Pope Francis. Its aim is to encourage all members of our Catholic community to recognise themselves as missionary disciples, working and praying together to share God’s love with everyone, everywhere. 
 
There are four main aims of the Extraordinary Month of Mission:
To encourage a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer.
To be inspired by the actions of our saints, martyrs and living missionaries.
To increase understanding of mission.
To increase support of overseas mission.
 
At STM, we will be participating in several ways!  We will be having an assembly to showcase the purpose and activities for the month, we will be having daily EMM prayers in class, we will be reflecting using the EMM daily calendar linked to the aims of EMM, we will have EMM whole school homework and we will have an EMM whole school display based on work in class as well as homework.

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.
