Description

RE Ideas: Expressive Arts provides teachers with creative ideas for teaching RE that explore the use of creativity within religion to express beliefs and celebrate important aspects of religious life for believers.

The book begins with an article that could support the RE subject leader to run staff training on expressive arts and RE, and provides specific curriculum examples relating to learning about Christianity, Hinduism and Islam. For our youngest children, we explore the church and the mosque and culminate in a team activity, creating a model of a mosque. Through dance and drama in Hinduism and Christianity, the use and meaning of colour and design in liturgical clothing and church decoration to the use of music in Islam for older pupils, this book provides a series of inspiring, creative teaching strategies which will increase pupil understanding and support teachers.
