Religious Education

Welcome to the RE page of our website.  Here you will not only find updates on the themes and liturgical units being studied in school, but also details of Masses, liturgies, assemblies and other special events that take place in our school. I do hope you enjoy seeing all the ways that the pupils and staff of St. Bede's are living out their faith and getting involved in our wider parish community. Please keep looking back for updates!

St. Bede's Feast Day Celebrations

We had a great day celebrating our patron saint's feast day. It was so lovely to see our wider school family at the picnic and we are ever thankful to the SBFA for providing ice lollies!

R.E. Curriculum

We finish the school year with units of work linked closely to the liturgical season and religious experiences of the children atthis time.

Following Pentecost Sunday on 4th June children throughout the school will be exploring the scriptural accounts of this special event that marks the birthday of the Church.

Later in the term children will be learning about the Catholic sacraments, and we will enjoy celebrating in a whole school Mass with the children who made their First Holy Communion over half term.

These units of work follow the 'God Matters' scheme of work adopted throughout the Portsmouth Diocese.

CAFOD visit Year 1 - Little Fish Make a Big Difference

Earlier this term we were presented with a special assembly by Roger Coveney, our school CAFOD liason. Roger taught the children about the small things we can all do to make a difference to the lives of others.  He then presented workshops to the children in Year 1 to explore this further.  The children thought hard about the special gifts that they could give to others so show the love of Jesus. You can read more about it on the CAFOD blog here.
