Religious Education in England


I realized I have mentioned RE (Religious Education) in the past, but may not have explained it.

In schools here in England, RE is a subject. This is not just for faith schools. RE goes over a different religion each term (3 terms a year, so they will revisit religions over the years) by giving an {unbiased if possible} overview of the faith. 

I am teaching all over the place at my lovely school, and on Tuesdays I teach RE to Year 3 for an hour (Year 3 is Second Grade age). The Autumn term I taught Judaism and this term is Buddhism. They look at artifacts, books, watch video clips, etc.

Crazy huh?

Here are a few pieces of their work-the last one is my favorite : )
