Introduction

Welcome to our Universal Church Topics. 

If you have any questions or experience any issues using the site please email schools@cafod.org.uk

We’re updating our games! Our KidzZone games no longer work on the website unfortunately, but we are updating them for September 2021. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The units of work are part of Come and See, which is the new Catholic Primary Religious Education programme for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 2. These units can also be used to supplement other programmes of study, and/or integrated into your current RE curriculum. Each topic includes attainment level indicators and summaries.

A different topic is used in each year group to explore the Universal Church theme. You will find lesson plans for each topic, as well as a wide range of resources including:

  • PowerPoint presentations
  • film clips
  • worksheets
  • activities
