KS1/2 RE - Experiential Approaches to Hinduism

Description

Inspirational AST and RE specialist Georgina Mulhall, who believes that RE is best taught by concept rather than by religion, teaches three lessons exploring devotion.

Year 4 pupils get to role play as archaeologists speculating about Hindu artefacts, and then go into role as devotees worshipping in a Hindu temple, and finally they apply the concept of devotion to their own lives.

It's fun and inclusive, and with no right or wrong it encourages higher-order thinking. As RE is culturally sensitive and subjective, Georgina believes it's often side-lined.

She sums up the values of a creative, concept-driven approach and advises on how to use role-play with confidence.
