Our RE theme is

Belonging to the Church

We will learn that we all belong to a community. We will also learn about different types of community and know what it means to belong to a community. We will develop our understanding of what it means to belong to community of the Church and know that people become a member of the Church through Baptism. We will be introduced to the Creed – a
statement of the Catholic faith and learn about the structure of the Church’s
liturgical year.
