Authority KS3 RS Religious Education Scheme of work unit Y7 Y8 or Y9

Authority KS3 RS Religious Education Scheme of work unit Y7 Y8 or Y9

This unit includes all you need to teach for around a term to KS3. There are lesson power points with back up activities, sheets, discussion points, resources, assessments etc. There is an assessment record page and a scheme of work to go with the powerpoint too. I have also written a three hour Flip Learning Project which substitutes some of the lessons as additional extra., the 99 names of God. Unit looks at leaders across faiths, holy scripture/Qu’ran as authority, Muhammad’s Night of Power and issue of obedience to authority/tradition/culture etc through wearing of coverings as a decision for Muslim women. This unit is a bridging unit into Islam another unit I have uploaded as pupils enjoyed this so much, I wrote a full unit on Islam for them for the next term. The PPT has 12 lessons and 53 slides with activities. You can pretty much walk into the room and teach from it, without further resources. Ideal if RS cover teacher or non-specialist too. I have developed a whole unit work from Year 5 up to Year 8 which I am now uploading. These have taken me hundreds of hours so I hope this saves you lots of time. Happy Sunday!

WJEC EDUQAS GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION MATERIALS – SIKHISM BELIEFS

WJEC EDUQAS GCSE RELIGIOUS STUDIES – REVISION MATERIALS – SIKHISM BELIEFS

This is a set of revision sheets for WJEC GCSE Religious Studies for Sikhism - Beliefs. It takes into account the question forms asked in the published SAMS, presenting material to support revision for the angles of questioning they pose. So it covers key terms, key and other teachings, general and specific religious information to do with each topic, and examples of diversity in belief/ practice. The reverse of each two-sided sheet provides guidance on answering each of the question types from the SAMS - so that students can become more familiar and so comfortable with the topics in exam terms. There are a number of sample questions for students to practise with in each format. The sheets can be used as a revision tool at home, as notes for class, to set homework from the questions on there. They also form a good basic level of knowledge for any teacher, and good examples of questions which can be explored with classes.
