Primary RE - Hinduism

This collection highlights the best of our RE resources covering Hinduism. Thanks to our marvellous contributors, we have many interesting and informative resources: from introducing key aspects of the faith, to a trump card game to discover all about Hindu gods. As an added bonus, we have included the relevant QCDA units at the end (Years 3 and 4). If you have Primary RE Hinduism resources you would like to add to this collection, email resources@tes.co.uk
