Lower V and Religious Studies

Studying Redemption

Mrs McDermott, Head of Religious Studies, reports on the recent Lower V studies, which has focussed on redemption.

‘We are so lucky to have the Chapel, not only as a place of worship for our community, but it also becomes a wonderful extra classroom for the Religious Studies Department.

As part of the new GCSE specification the girls have been investigating the meaning behind the architecture and central features of a Catholic church. In some recent Religious Studies lessons, Lower VA worked in groups to become specialists on the tabernacle, crucifix, altar and lectern.

It was easy to identify them in the Chapel and explain how these items help worship but the task became more challenging when they had to show an understanding of how those features express the mystery of redemption.’
