The book acknowledges the importance of planning for progression across the curriculum and the importance of establishing RE in the Early Years. A detailed appendix provides an introduction to the six world religions and offers suggestions for further reading to support trainees in the development of their subject knowledge. Linked to the 2007 Standards for QTS throughout, the book also includes summaries, practical and reflective tasks and case studies to help contextualise learning and further understanding."--BOOK JACKET.
