Easter - Who is responsible for the death of Jesus

Easter - Who is responsible for the death of Jesus

This resource contains six Fact Files on characters that are relating to the Passion narrative within the Bible. Pupils can be divided into groups and asked to collect evidence on each character and build up a convincing argument as to why this person may be responsible for Jesus death. This activity works well when ended with a class debate on this topic.

Pacifism

This was an Estyn inspected 'Excellent' lesson. These resources were taken by the inspector as an example of good practice. It is a 'Grab & Go' resource-a complete lesson. It is based on the true cost of war, the various forms of non-violent protest and enables pupils to somewhat understand how this relates to pacifist belief. The PowerPoint is fully editable. This contains a literacy task in the form of a letter to the Prime Minister about War.
