Pupils at Christ the King school are growing to be . . .
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.
At Christ the King, we value the Religious Education and Collective Worship above other core subjects.
As a Catholic school, we use at least 10% of our curriculum time on RE from Reception up to Year Six. This equates to 2 hours per week in EYFS and KS1 and 2 and a half hours per week in KS2. We also conduct Collective Worship in different forms across all classes, including Nursery.
As we are a part of the Nottingham Diocese, we undertake lessons using the Come and See curriculum. This scheme uses relevant resources to make learning fun, interactive, deep and meaningful in each class. At the start of each unit, children explain what they know already about the topic being studied and by the end of the unit, children are able to celebrate in a class situation to show their understanding from their new learning.
Each term, a newsletter is sent home to each family to explain our topics and give ideas for home reflection. As well as this, children across each class are given the opportunity to celebrate their learning with the whole school and parents through class assemblies, liturgies and learning log homework.
If you have any questions about Come and See, please contact your child's class teacher. If you would like to find out more, please visit www.comeandseere.co.uk
