The Governors at St Leo’s and Southmead Catholic Primary School have adopted, “A Journey in Love”– a developmental Programme. This is the recommended resource for the teaching of Sex and Relationship Education because it is compiled specifically to present a Catholic vision.
In each Year group, an aspect of love is explored and developed starting from Nursery to Year 6. Young people are encouraged to marvel at the wonder and beauty of God’s creative love reflected in each person under the components: Physical, intellectual, social emotional and spiritual. Each section has suggested progressive/developmental tasks/activities/reflections. Cross curricular links e.g. Come and See, science, art, drama, music, literacy, circle-time, worship, prayer and hymns. OVERVIEW of Themes Nursery: Wonder at God’s love.
