Unpacking key Christian beliefs in RE and collective worship
Reflective Learning provides KS2 teachers with essential background information for key Christian beliefs and offers important tools to instil confidence in the teaching of RE. The material focuses on three key concepts related to the principal beliefs of the Christian faith as follows:
^^^Key Concept One: Who God is (the Trinity) - Three units comprising the stories of creation, re-creation and baptism ^Key Concept Two:: What God has done (Salvation) - Five units comprising the stories of Christmas and Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost ^Key Concept Three: The Church today - Three units relating to the journey of life: belonging and believing, sharing and caring, and patterns for living. ^^Each unit starts with an in-depth classroom-based exploration of the concept, with background information for the teacher, ideas for exploring the story, questions about the story, introductory tasks, key symbols, and ideas for understanding the story through the five senses. The classroom material for each unit is supported by two comprehensive outlines for acts of collective worship for assembly, each of which follows a common format, including ideas for applying the material and suggestions for songs and prayers.
^^Alongside the class work and assembly material, creative ideas are given for setting up a theme-based focus table for the classroom.^
