R.E. Curriculum

From Nursery up to Year 6, we follow the ‘Come and See’ Religious Education Programme. Each class covers three topics per term, with each topic lasting about 4 to 5 weeks. The topics focus on The Local Church, The Sacraments and Gospel stories about the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Classes from Years 1 to 6 also find out about other faiths. They learn about Judaism in the Autumn Term and Islam in the Summer Term.

In the Summer Term, all year groups find out about how we can reach out to people in the wider world in the Universal Church topics. Children learn about the work of CAFOD in developing countries. We also support CAFOD with fundraising activities such as our sponsored silence in Lent. There are Home Learning packs for each year group on the Hexham and Newcastle Diocesan Education website ( There are packs for the current Sacramental topics as well as the Advent/Christmas topics. There are also links to the resources on the CAFOD website.
