Below are a range of resources to use in TCT with form groups.
The resources have been divided into the categories: WATCH & READ.
WATCH contains short video reflections. READ has similar resources but in a format to be read by a member of the class.
Reflections – Thoughts on Scripture and the Saints
Prayers – Prayers from Catholic Tradition
Meditation | The Examen
At the end of the day, a week, or a half term it is recommended to do an Examen. This is a prayerful reflection of the day, that helps us to grow in gratefulness and learn from the moments that challenge us. You can listen to a version of an Examen Prayer below:
Examen prayers are usually prayed at the end of the day. At other times, pupils should be guided to think back over the day before, the past week or another short period of time.
Recommendations from other staff*
Praying Each Day – Daily Catholic prayers from De La Salle Brothers.
*Please note that if using other resources or a more spontaneous approach to prayer, the School Resource should still be read and a whole-school focus incorporated into the prayer time regularly.

Year 10 GCSE students visited the FOOD: Bigger than the Plate exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum
It explored how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food.
This exhibition took us on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it posed questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways.
