As part of her final primary teaching practice (Year 5), Sian Higgins, who is specialising in religious education, is exploring her pupils' responses to death. She would like to hear from teachers who have tackled this subject. What resources did you use? Was it beneficial for the children to have the chance to talk about it? What problems did you encounter? What did you find out about children's conception of death and the afterlife? Address: The Vicarage, Central Avenue, Oakdale, Gwent NP2 OJS.
