Come and See
At St. Mary’s Religious Education lessons account for ten percent of teaching each week and is taught through Come and See.
The Come and See programme has been developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles. It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of Religious Education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels of Attainment and the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory.
At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.
Come and See offers the opportunity to search, explore, discover, and respond; this is part of what it is to be human.
Children Come and See the wonder of all that is within them and beyond them. God offers an invitation to all to Come and See. Teachers facilitate the opportunity for children to Come and See.
Come and See has three overarching themes: The Church, Sacraments and Christian Living.
