Love it

Caroline Coster teaches at Sandye Place middle school, Bedfordshire, and is researching ways to use the Internet in teaching RE. Her best "virtual visits" to places of worship start at Sir Robert Hitcham's primary school in Framlingham, Suffolk, via the resource pages on the school site http:atschool.eduweb.co.uksirrobhitch.suffolk "When studying religions, it is wonderful to take children to places of worship. Sadly, this is not always possible. But the Internet provides some excellent 'virtual visits'.

"The re-xs site(http:re-xs.ucsm.ac.uk) contains interactive pictures and text for the religious buildings of Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Jews and Hindus (follow the links for world religions and then buildings) but my favourite site is Sir Robert Hitcham's. It contains detailed tours of a mosque and a synagogue, with links through the pictures and the text (which is suitable for primary pupils)."
