Rama and Sita, The Holocaust, The Monkey King

Description

The broadcast version of this programme is subtitled.

Lesley Prior, the PGCE religious education subject leader at the Institute of Education (IOE), and RE advisor for Hounslow LEA, shares her thoughts on some key resources.

Lesley has three recommendations for the panel:

  • A multi-character Rama and Sita storytelling doll by Articles of Faith and accompanying storybook
  • The Yellow Star - Jews in Holocaust by Carmen Agra Deedy: an illustrated book about the Nazi occupation of Denmark, published by Cats Whiskers
  • The Monkey King and other Tales video pack on Buddhism

Ray Sherwood, joint headteacher at St Matthew's Primary School in Westminster, is using the Rama and Sita doll to tell the Diwali story. Rohan Plunkett, a Year 3 teacher at Simon Marks Jewish School in north London uses The Yellow Star book to help teach religious tolerance.

Lesley joins presenter Hermione Cockburn to discuss the resources with panellists Ray Barker, head of the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) and Alan Mills of the Specialist Schools Trust.
