We will start the term by looking at Our Church.

We will develop our understanding of what it means to belong to God’s Family. In the unit we

focus on the role of the parish and people with special responsibilities.

Children will also hear about the origins of the Church through the lives of the Apostles. We will then look at The Mass, where we develop our understanding of the structure of the Mass and what is taking place. The focus will be on seeing Christ present when we gather, in the Word and in the Eucharist.
