Virtues and Values

In Autumn One, following our Jesuit values, we are growing to be compassionate and loving. 

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.”

(Ephesians 4:32)


Religious Education

But you are a chosen race, the King’s priests, the holy nation, God’s own people, chosen to proclaim the wonderful acts of God, who called you out of darkness into his own marvellous light. (1 Peter 2:9)

In the autumn term, our first topic will focus on ourselves. We will explore how we are all made in the image and likeness of God Our Father and recognise God Our Father as a loving parent.  As the children of God, we will look at different ways we can give thanks to God.  We will research the lives of Holy People, the virtue of peace, and understand how we are all called to holiness as a way to know, love and serve God.


Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:8-1)

Our second topic will develop the theme of ourselves and recognise that, through Baptism, we are called to a life of holiness and to the mission of spreading the Good News. That life may be lived out in different ways. For some, it will be through the Sacrament of Marriage but whatever life choices are made, the Christian is called to a commitment of holiness and service of others. In doing so, we are all sharing in the mission of Jesus Christ, following the Beatitudes and are visible as witnesses to the Christian life.


In that region there were shepherds living in the fields keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see – I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a saviour, who is the Messiah, (The Christ) the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2:8-12)

In preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus at Christmas, we will focus on the liturgical season of Advent and the virtue of hope.  The prophesies in the Old Testament, particularly from Isaiah and Jeremiah, about the coming of the Messiah, will help us to prepare for the Christ who comes to us each day, and encourage us to wait in joyful hope for Him to come in glory at the end of time.  We will also develop a deeper understanding of the incarnation and celebrate the Joyful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary.


English, Geography and History Topic – Moving People

The cross curricular topic, Moving People, will provide us with the opportunity to write a non-chronological report about a natural environmental disaster as well as a persuasive argument detailing what governments should do to care for their populations.  After studying the impact of enforced movement, we will write an account of escaping slavery via the Underground Railway in America.  Finally, we will use all our knowledge and understanding of the topic to write a letter as the ‘Silence Seeker’ to his friend Joe.

In Geography, we’ll be finding out about:

  • The similarities and differences between places we know
  • How and why our families have moved around the world
  • How different places are linked
  • How and why people move and goods are transported around the world
  • About environmental disasters which influence human migration
  • About disaster relief organisations

In History, we’ll be finding out:

  • About the migrations of people in pre-historical times
  • About the spread of ideas, technology, language, food, goods and culture through migration
  • About the historical importance of past civilisations on present day societies
  • About the effects of migration on countries around the world
  • About enforced movements of people and why these occurred
  • About influences of past movements of people on our present day societies

In Society, we’ll be finding out:

  • About refugees — who they are, what their rights are and our responsibilities with regards to this
  • About the role of organisations who support refugees and migrants

In International, we’ll be finding out:

  • About reasons for economic migration, its effects and the laws that control it
  • How different groups of migrants and refugees are treated in the host country
