Theatre of learning – experiential approaches to RE

image

Today primary UG year 2 trainees explored ‘the island’ and religious neutral exercises to understand how to relate religion to human experiences. Through taking part in storytelling techniques and reflection in how to use symbolic objects, ¬†Sue Phillips guided the trainees to see the potential RE has for holistic development and can enable children to make sense of religious practices that occasionally can seem confusing or strange.

Trainees noted that the workshop helped them see how to relate practices to human experiences and enjoyed the opportunity to consider alternative creative approaches to RE.
