I wrote this work booklet for lockdown/home learning situations. It is 40 pages, so prints to 10 sheets of A3 when folded into an A4 booklet. Each lesson contains reading material, tasks built into it and the presentation is varied with pictures etc to break up the text. It can be used to give KS3 students a basic introduction to Judaism.

I have 15+ years experience as Head of RE, now Head of Humanities and have seen it all with all the initiatives that come along, and then go, then come back under new names - this booklet has been written with literacy, assessment, SMSC, British Values etc in mind - in short it ticks all the boxes. Its what you probably know as good, old fashioned RE teaching - AO1, AO2 & AO3 mixed up and combined into one lesson that is varied, interesting and useful in everyday life.

My local Rabbi has read it and approved it, I suppose you could say that it is Kosher too.

It took me days to write, this is not a quick worksheet knocked up hastily at break - weeks in fact, and then was trialled on my own students and improved here and there.
