NEW 2018 KS3 FULL SOW RE. Suitable for non-specialists "What is religion?" Islam, Sikhism & Judaism

NEW 2018 KS3 FULL SOW RE. Suitable for non-specialists "What is religion?" Islam, Sikhism & Judaism

I made this scheme of work according to our new Local Agreed Syllabus. Lesson plans and resources are all included, although some things might need adjusting for your classes. I have also made some differentiated resources. We have non-specialists teaching KS3 at our school so it was designed with them in mind. I hope you find this useful and it saves you some time! There is also an assessment at the end, based on all the topic. *Lesson 2 is missing as it is an assessment particular to our school. *Lessons 9 and 10 have been missed out as they are a project using resources we have at school.
