Religious Beliefs and Moral choices KS3 Y7 Y8 Y9 RE RS Religious Education

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 etc. There is an assessment 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. I have developed a whole unit work from Year 5 up to Year 8 which I am now uploading. It all took hundreds of hours so I hope this saves you lots of time. Happy Sunday!
