Understanding Christianity gives in-depth support to the Christianity sections of the new Cornwall RE syllabus.

It aims to develop pupils’ understanding of key concepts in Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it. This 3-session course will give teachers full access to this outstanding resource and nationally recognised system of learning in RE.

Session 1 - Tuesday 2nd February

Modules 1 and 2 (Introduction and Teaching & Learning)

Session 2 - Tuesday 23rd March

Modules 3 and 4 (The Big Story of the Bible and Planning great Teaching & Learning)

Session 3 - Wednesday 21st April

  • Each session will include setting teachers a ‘gap task’, trialling an aspect of the resource in school. 
  • Feedback and discussion on these ‘gap tasks’ will be included in each session, so that teachers can share ideas and learn from each other’s experiences.

Places are limited to 30 school places
