The Bible (8/14)

The Bible (8/14)

A new scheme of work aimed at KS3 Y7. This unit of work will be a Chronology of Monotheism. Starting with Genesis, moving through Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Each religion will cover Key religious figures, information on their holy book and a rite of passage/religious practice. The aim of this unit is to compliment our GCSE curriculum in which we study Christianity and Islam. The learning journey for the unit is included. The Bible: An introduction to the Bible, looking at the Old and New Testament in a video and gap filler. Students then look at the different ways the Bible can be interpretted- liberal and literal. They consider other sources of authority that may provide more guidance in the modern day (prayer, visiting church, listening to their conscience). Students then pretend to ring into This Morning to answer a phone in question regarding if the Bible is out of date.

Six religions are covered in this quiz. Resources include: visual clues, written clues and answers. The idea is to pair the two. I’ve used this as an end of year assessment for year 6 - placing the pictures around the room and got the class to use the quiz sheet and match them up to the correct number (extra points given for item name and religion).

LESSON ON DEPRESSION FOR TEENS- KS3, PSHE, ENGLISH, RE

LESSON ON DEPRESSION FOR TEENS- KS3, PSHE, ENGLISH, RE

**This is a brilliant creative lesson on depression for teens. It can be used with Key Stage 3 classes (US Grades 6 to 8) in PSHE, ENGLISH, RE or Citizenship. ** The aim of these lessons is to create bright, honest, straightforward and well-designed activities and resources so that teens can connect with the material and understand why the topic is relevant to them. DON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY THE NUMBER OF SLIDES! The presentation has been specifically designed to have as little as possible on each slide so that they are easy to read, memorable and so they build a story! The lesson is split into five sections: ‘What is depression?’; ‘Who gets depressed?’; ‘What does it feel like?’, ‘How do you recognise depression?’ and ‘What helps with depression?’. Each section has a variety of activities so that you can adapt the lesson to your class and the amount of time you have available for the topic. The lesson plan has suggestions for a one hour lesson and a half hour lesson. The full lesson with all the activities would fill 90-100 minutes. Included is an editable Power Point, a PDF version of the Power Point with easy to read, beautifully designed fonts, a PDF of the detailed lesson plan and PDFs of the three worksheets required both in colour and grayscale. Also included is the video of the TED Talk included in the lesson and a version of the ‘Who Said That?’ worksheet with the answers. All feedback gratefully received! Thank you.
