This lesson is based on the new AQA GCSE RE specification. This is the first in a series of lessons that will guide students through the Buddhist Practices unit. This lesson is designed to introduce this unit, but also recall and recap the Buddhist Beliefs unit - this sets the context up for the rest of the lessons.
