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.

October is the month for the Holy Rosary and the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary is Wednesday 7th October.

What is The Rosary?

The Rosary is a set of prayers to God, Our Lady and the Holy Spirit. As we repeat the familiar words, we allow our minds to think about a wonderful part of Jesus’ life here on earth - a mystery.

The Mysteries

There are four parts to the rosary, known as “mysteries”:

The Joyful Mysteries •The Sorrowful Mysteries •The Glorious Mysteries •The Luminous Mysteries

Each set of mysteries is divided into five elements (known as 'a decade') which allow for reflection on different passages from Scripture. A decade is a set of prayers including the Our Father, ten Hail Marys and a Glory Be.

You could say the entire rosary as a family over a period of 4 weeks as follows:

Each week you could choose one of the 'mysteries' of the Rosary.

Each day you could say one ‘decade’ of the rosary.

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.
