Children in Foundation learn to make sense of their community through opportunities to explore and find out about people, places and religions. We practise the Catholic faith and introduce other religions to the children through multi-faith weeks, in order for children to understand similarities and differences between cultures.
In Foundation we gather together each day in quiet reflection and pray.
RE – Our world
Our RE current topic is Our World – Universal church.
For many people, some places in the world are special. For others the whole world is special.
We all feel a need to look after what is special to us. Sometimes it is easy to explain why things are special. At other times it might be difficult to put into words why something is special.
Christians believe that the diversity of the world and its people is God’s gift.
“We are one body in Christ, depending on one another. Let each one of us, therefore, serve according to our different gifts…. Let love be sincere. Hate what is evil and hold to whatever is good.” (Romans 12: 4-11)
