Progression of Skills & Knowledge Map

St John Fisher follows the 'Come and See RE' Catholic Education units of work for Religious Education. 

We follow the Diocesan recommended programme 'Come and See' which was 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. 
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' is an invitation to exploration and a promise of life for everyone. Come and See offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover and to 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.

God – Offers the invitation to 'Come and See'

Teachers – Facilitates the opportunity for children to 'Come and See'
 

Each topic, opened up through: Explore, Reveal and Respond.

Within Explore –children begin to look at and focus on the experience with their own lives – concerning themselves, their relationships and the world. 

Within Reveal – The heart of the process where knowledge and understanding of the catholic Faith is revealed through the Word, in Scripture, Tradition, doctrine, prayers, rites and Christian living.

Within Respond –this is where the learning is assimilated celebrated and responded to in daily life. 

Throughout a pupil’s school journey they will each have the opportunity to explore different faiths and religions as part of this curriculum, in particular, Judaism and Islam.
