“The Church is the family of God, the people that God gathers in the whole world”

Religious Education Curriculum Directory

This half term, the children in Reception will be learning about the Church. The children will begin to understand that we call the Church the family of God. They will learn that a church building is a holy place where we can all pray and are welcome. The children will learn that Jesus is present in a special way in the Blessed Sacrament and he invites us to be with him. They will learn to be thankful that lots of people help to look after the church and know why Sunday is a special day.

 At home you could help your children by:                                             

  • visiting church, either for Mass or another time, to talk about the church reminding them what a special place a Church is and reasons why
  • talking to your child about their Baptism, explaining how this was the day that they became part of God’s family.
