We are Companions on a Journey
St Columba's follows the Come and See programme of Religious Education recommended by the Archdiocese of Liverpool. The aim of this programme is to explore questions about life, dignity and purpose within the Catholic tradition.
Each year group from Nursery to year 6 have their own list of focus topics to cover throughout the academic year all linked by a central theme. The topics will coincide with the church calendar however, the depth in which the topic is explored is dependent upon the respective age of the child.
Each topic is split into 3 sections-
Children remember and celebrate what they have learnt and apply their knowledge individually.
Children learn through shared experience and make connections between life’s experiences and the gospel teachings. Teaching methods stimulate activities resulting in a response from the ‘heart’ of the child, developing attitudes of respect and reverence and an understanding that following Jesus is a call to holiness and wholeness of life.
