A vibrant, cross-curricular resource, our Religious Education Resource Files are packed with ready-to-use RE lesson plans and activities that enable teachers to deliver the sort of interesting and thoughtful RE lessons that can influence pupils’ spiritual, moral and cultural development.
Based on the National Framework for Religious Education and featuring ready-to-use primary RE lesson plans, medium-term plans and lively activity sheets, they offer a wealth of materials that can be used in conjunction with any Locally Agreed Syllabus.
The complete, comprehensive multi-media package includes:
- A ring binder of inspiring lesson plans, medium term plans with cross-curricular links and activity sheets that will save you hours of preparation time.
- A CD featuring an electronic flipbook with images of religious festivals, places and artefacts, as well as everyday scenes that link to the lessons in the file — ideal for a whiteboard and perfect for starting a discussion.
- A large-format flipbook featuring the images from the CD, perfect for whole-class teaching and display.
- An editable version of the whole file in Microsoft® Word format, so that you can adapt it to suit your school.
Each primary RE lesson plan features clear learning objectives and outcomes, opportunities for differentiation, guidance on assessment and extension activities. The medium-term plans give an overview of the forthcoming lessons, their learning objectives and outcomes and cross-curricular activities.
