At St James’, 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 ½ hours per week, per class from Reception upwards and 1 ½ hours in Nursery. We also conduct Collective Worship in different forms across all classes, including Nursery.
Loving topic - Advent- Expectations
Year 6 launched their new RE topic by working in groups to discuss the meaning of the word expectations. They thought about expectations others have of them, the expectations they have of others and how we feel when people don’t live up to expectations. They recognised that when others have high expectations of them it helps us them to succeed.
