Understanding Christianity Day 3 (Option 2)

A set of new resources called Understanding Christianity: Text Impact Connections, offers an approach to teaching and learning about Christianity with units of work and supporting resources from EYFS to Year 9.  It was launched at Lambeth Palace on 26th May 2016.

Understanding Christianity will set the bar for the quality of teaching and learning about Christianity in our schools and academies.  It reinforces the messages we have been giving over the last few years about 'digging deeper' and engaging children and young people with the big ideas and concepts of the Christian faith. The teaching approach is one of theological enquiry, and the units of work support both continuity and progression.

The Resources

These include a handbook and units of work as well as a copy of the "Picturing Christianity" pack and a wall frieze showing the "Big Story" of the Bible.  The resources will only be available to teachers who attend the training package.  This has been stipulated by RE Today to ensure effective implementation.

Understanding Christianity takes places over 3 days.  On day one the RE Subject Leaders will receive the resources to support implementation. Following this, participants must attend a Day Two and Day Three Encounter day.  It is not possible to attend days two and three without attendance on day one.  All sessions will take place at the Diocese of Peterborough Education Office, Bouverie Court, Bedford Road, Northampton NN4 7YD from 9.30am - 3.30pm.

Day 1 will be held on Thursday 29 June 2017 (Option 1) OR Thursday 12 October 2017 (Option 2)

Day 2 will be held on Tuesday 26 September 2017 (Option 1) OR Monday 15 January 2018 (Option 2)

Day 3 will be held on Monday 4 December 2017 (Option 1) OR Thursday 26 April 2018 (Option 2)

The Diocesan Education Offices, Bouverie Court, Unit 1, 6 The Lakes, Bedford Road, Northampton NN4 7YD
