:: Creative RE - exploring Christianity ::
A creative course exploring high quality RE through the arts and literature. It aims to provide specialist and non specialist teachers of RE with ideas and strategies to help them to teach RE creatively and with increased confidence. The exemplars explored aim to broaden and deepen understanding of Christianity, an area of 'specific concern' highlighted by Ofsted. This course will also support those schools who are developing the ‘Understanding Christianity’ project. There will be a mix of tutor led input and discussions but the main focus of the day will be trying out new ideas and activities and considering how to use them to enhance RE teaching and learning across the primary curriculum.
By attending the course participants will:
  • explore a cross curricular approach to teaching Christianity, religion and belief
  • develop knowledge and understanding of how drama, art and literature can be used to enhance teaching and learning in religious education
  • enhance teaching and learning strategies to develop concepts, teachings and traditions of Christianity as a living world faith
  • develop progression in creative teaching and learning
  • explore spiritual responses through creative RE
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
  • Early Career Teachers
  • Middle Leaders
