Primary curriculum for Year 1 and Year 6

Click here to download the objectives of the new Primary curriculum for years 1 and 6. There are 11 units for every respective year. Every unit holds 4 general objectives:

  • WG – Word of God
  • SD – Spiritual Dimension
  • RL – Religious Language
  • PCWV  - Personal Catholic World View

The Word of God: Hereby students acquire the ability to understand and encounter the Word of God as found both in the Sacred Scriptures and in the Sacred Tradition. The students need to grasp the ability to learn from the witness to the Christian faith throughout the ages and particularly in modern times.

The Spiritual Dimension: Students are educated in the sense of beauty and wonder, of emotions and of attitudes as they have found expression in the Roman Catholic tradition, together with the ability to formulate, express, and possibly answer, fundamental existential questions. Such education is found in, through and with Jesus Christ, of relationships/connectedness with oneself, others, all creation and God.

The Religious Language: Students are helped to understand the religious phenomenon and of how religion sustains and contributes to the development of cultures and societies, particularly in Western ones, through the arts, politics, sciences, education and philosophy. Students are helped to acquire the ability to read and interpret symbols and religious language, and to understand and critically appreciate other religion.

Personal Catholic Worldview: Students are helped to acquire virtues and values, together with the ability to read one’s own situation in a critical and analytic manner in the light of the Christian message. Students are to acquire the ability to apply the Christian message; and to live in a community in respect of diversity and in commitment to humankind.

The general objectives of every unit must remain the same for all teachers. On the other hand, teachers are expected to subdivide the general objectives into particular ones to create lessons and activities for the different abilities in class.

For further information, teachers can also access the Handbook for teaching of Religious Education (2012).


Resource for pastoral-liturgical material

I have come across this website: which I think is very helpful for teachers as a resource for pastoral-liturgical material. In it one can find pictures, videos, games etc. – very helpful material for lesson resources. It is in Italian but very rich in materials.

Many thanks for the wonderful work you have done for the website. Best regards,

Redemptoris Missio, tal-Papa Ġwanni Pawlu II, bil-Malti.

Is-Segretarjat għal-Lajċi għadu kif poġġa l-enċiklika, REDEMPTORIS MISSIO, tal-Papa Ġwanni Pawlu II fil-verżjoni bil-Malti.

Minkejja li kienet publikata fl-1990, il-kontenut ta’ din l-enċiklika għadu ferm attwali għal dan iż-żmien meta l-Knisja tant qed tisħaq dwar il-bżonn ta’ Evanġeliżazzjoni Ġdida.

Fir-Redemptoris Missio, il-Papa Ġwanni Pawlu II jagħti lista ta’ karatteristiċi ta’ din l-Evanġeliżazzjoni.  Fosthom jgħid…

  • li din trid tkun Kristo-ċentrika;
  • li hija r-responsabiltà tal-Poplu ta’ Alla kollu;
  • li din mhix biss immirata lejn missjonijiet barranin;
  • li hija indirizzata kemm lejn l-individwi kif ukoll lejn kulturi sħaħ;
  • li din mhix limitata biss għall-preżentazzjoni tal-messaġġ bażiku tal-Evanġelju, imma hija proċess komprensiv ta’ Kristjaniżazzjoni;
  • li din tinħtieġ spiritwalità missjunarja;

L-enċiklika tista’ ssibha kollha bil-Malti, flimkien ma’ enċikliċi oħra mill-paġna tal-LAIKOS…
