A child's drawing of themself.  Lesson plans and worksheets.

There are 4 sections which are a suggested order for certain years but please use them as you see fit.
Each of the Lesson plans has generally got 2 worksheets and some have got a drama script.

Teachers comments can be seen at the bottom of this page.

These Lesson plans and worksheets have been used by teachers for a number of years from around the world – Canada, USA, UK, Spain, New Zealand, to mention just some of the countries.
The idea for these Religious Education lesson plans came from overhearing a number of Primary School teachers at different schools talking about how hard they found teaching R.E. and also at that time I was called in to take an R.E. lesson.
So I decided to write these free Lesson plans and worksheets.

If you approve of them, please spread the word!

I am aware that the subject of Religious Education in the UK is in a state of turmoil with so many changes coming from the government.

I hope that you will be able to incorporate these lesson plans into your Personal Social Health and Economic education (PSHE).

If you have got any experience, comments, suggestions on this please let me know via the Comment Form at the bottom of this page, thanks it would be really good to hear from you – the ones who are at the cutting edge of this.
