Dialogue and encounter: ‘For “In him we live and move and have our being”’ (Acts 17:28). In this branch, pupils will learn how Christians work together with people of different religious convictions and all people of goodwill towards the common good, respecting the dignity of all humanity. They will also encounter other pathways of belief drawing on the teaching of the Church about intercultural dialogue. (Religious Education Directory 2025 p.62)

Branch 6 is taught in the second half of the Summer term.

When planning the curriculum for this half term, we note the number of key events in the liturgical and school calendar and look for clear and explicit opportunities to embed learning by making links between different aspects of our wide curriculum.

In addition, we have identified some key opportunities and themes linked to the unit description.

These include:

  • PSHE and RSHE
  • Our school promises
  • Transition
  • Other civilisations around the world
  • Civilisations in history
  • Catholic Social Teaching
  • British Values
  • Different cultures
  • Similarities and Differences
