Trails are an opportunity for us to transform a room into a reflective and engaging space, with a series of zones for students to interact with. The trails bring an experiential dimension to students' learning in a variety of areas, including RE, PSHE and SMSC. Each zone prompts a response from the students through use of stimulating resources, challenging questions and fun activities to complete.
Trails can be adapted to your school’s context and installed for 2 days or longer. The REC team lead students around the trail and provide feedback to school staff as appropriate.
Our Justice Trail allows students to:
- debate and discuss just punishments for various crimes;
- reflect on the power of forgiveness using real-life scenarios; and
- consider these issues from God's perspective.
Our Identity Trail gives students an opportunity to:
- reflect upon how they discover their identity in an image-obsessed culture;
- discuss the labels we place upon each other and the impact our words can have; and
- discover Christian perspectives of belonging and identity.
Creation Care TRAIL
Our Creation Care Trail enables students to:
- grasp the impact of their actions on the future of the planet;
- discuss Christian responses to global warming and pollution; and
- consider case studies dealing with species extinction.
THE CHURCH'S RESPONSE TO SUFFERING
This PSHE & RE trail focuses on the current refugee crisis as an example of how the Church has responded to suffering. Pupils will discover:
- how Britain has responded to refugees throughout history.
- the lengths people are willing to go, to find safety.
- how faith in God helps people through suffering.
- how Christians in Bristol have worked together to meet the needs of refugees.
