Building the Kingdom
Embedded into our RE curriculum and Humanities topics, are planned opportunities for children to reflect and actively consider and work towards ways that they can continue the work of God and 'Build his Kingdom' today.
In Humanities, core questions are planned to enable children to reflect on their History and Geography learning through a Catholic Lens.
Examples of these questions are as follows:
Animal Kingdom: Are we caretakers or owners?
Titanic: How are options influenced by wealth?
Ancient Egypt - Does our culture influence our actions?
World War 1: Is war ever just?
Africa: Where should global assistance begin?
In RE, lessons begin with questions which prompt children to think about how they can learn through religion. They often use scripture to encourage children to think about their own journey of faith. They promote children to 'wonder' and think carefully about Gospel stories and teachings.
In addition to this, lessons include planned tasks and questions which teach children about modern day Gospel activists and stories, and how people have responded to God's call in more recent times. In turn, this helps them to consider how they can use these stories and people to inspire their own actions as people of God.
