In addition to our lessons, our multi-sensory Christmas and Easter Trails provide pupils with the opportunity to engage with these key Christian festivals in a way which is not usually practical in the classroom.

We also offer a Stepping Up Trail for Year 6 pupils in preparation for the move to secondary school.


SECONDARY LESSONS

Our secondary RE lessons are individually tailored in close consultation with school staff to ensure maximum relevance and enrichment to the theme being studied. We usually request learning objectives from teachers and email our final lesson plan for approval before the visit. 

We can adapt to the length of your lessons and are flexible as to location - we can come to you or you can come to us.

In addition to our lessons, our multi-sensory trails provide students with the opportunity to engage with a range of philosophical ideas in a way which is not usually practical in the classroom.
