Come and See

Come and See is the result of great commitment by so many talented and gifted educators.  It has been trialed in schools by teachers and written with the help of experienced primary diocesan advisers.

The programme has been developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in the way that is coherent with current educational principles.

It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of religious education.  It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels of Attainment and the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory.

At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See give pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.

I am sure that Come and See will serve you well in the sacred task of teaching religious education.
