Complete RE schemes of work for EYFS - two year cycle. <br /><br />The RE themes are based on the church calendar (Christmas, Easter, Pentecost) but also closely linked to EYFS topics, so they can be adapted to meet everyone's needs and interests.
A unit of work based around Humanism that complies with the SACRE for Bedfordshire.<br /><br /><br />The scheme is a look at values and compares Humanist, Christian and Self values.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Some resources that I have used I have created and some resourced from other sources, if it is not my own work I have left the author's name on the work or cited the source.
For a three part philosophy unit I have written and designed comes the first unit answering the question: Is there a God? <br />
There are 8 lessons in total. The school I was working for at the time focused a great deal on literacy so this is a theme throughout all lessons with extended reading and writing. There is a good basis for discussion questions for students. It would also be a scheme suitable for KS2, I found taught this for three years now and find students really love discussing ultimate questions such as whether or not God exists.<br />
The miracle lesson has a look at miraculous events in both Christianity and modern times, looking at the reaction from New Yorkers to the Hudson River plane crash. The problem of evil lesson focuses on Ebola in Western Africa and religious responses to the suffering from the illness. There is also a lesson which use an interview with Ricky Gervais to explain why someone might turn away from God and become an atheist.
In a three part philosophy unit I have written and designed, comes the first unit answering the question: Is there a life after death?<br />
There are 8 lessons in total. The school I was working for at the time focused a great deal on literacy so this is a theme throughout all lessons with extended reading and writing. There is a good basis for discussion questions for students. It would also be a scheme suitable for KS2, I found taught this for three years now and find students really love discussing ultimate questions - particularly if there is evidence for the afterlife.<br />
Within this scheme students are required to discuss what they think a soul is and where it may be within us. There is also a mention f Dualism, wit resources of Ancient Egyptian belief in life after death to aid students understanding of this. Its a pretty cool, different religious view point for students to have a look at.<br />
The 8th lesson requires a good knowledge of Harry Potter and is for a bit of fun, it isn't necessary in the overall SOW. It focuses on the philosophy of mind: dualism theme advocated throughout the story of Harry Potter by the discussion of the soul and ghosts.
One activity is matching pictures to simple descriptions of the objects. One is a simple cloze procedure with pictures - use the accompanying word mat to find the missing key words.
The other is just a simple naming worksheet, to be used in conjunction with the topic word mat.
These lessons include readings, quiz' and students notes pages with graphic organizers<br />
