A-Z resources

Average Rating4.28
(based on 92 reviews)

Hi, I hope you find these resources useful I have been teaching in primary for over 20 years. These days I am a supply teacher and I run an 'information' site for teachers and parents. All my resources I have used in schools over my time teaching. My resources take inspiration from all the experiences and ideas I have had from working full time, supply work, and one-one tuition with children up to KS4. I thank all the colleagues who have input into my resources in one way or another.

RE-Buddhism Introductions KS1-3

(0)
Suitable for KS1-3. Another of my ‘religion basics’. Similar in set up to the Christian ppt but on Buddhism. Covers same basic topics of who, where and when, special people, places, books and symbols; as well as beliefs, celebrations and rites of passage. I am not an RE expert but struggle to find just the basics- so decided to have a go at putting a series of ppts together on key points about each religion. Hope this helps someone!

RE- Christianity: Introduction ppt KS1-3

(0)
Suitable for KS1-3, I’m not an RE teacher- and often find I need just the basics. I am in the process of making introductory ppt on each of the 6 main religions. I’m not saying they include everything but hopefully cover- who, what and when the religion began, special places, people and books, symbols, beliefs, celebrations and rites of passage. Hopefully this and the others when they are done maybe helpful to someone!
