A Day in the Theatre of Learning

2013-02-25 13.45.31

Sue Phillips visited Edge Hill university to invite PGCE and Final Year KS2/3 Undergrauate students to spend a day in the Theatre of Learning.  Sue has pioneered this exciting and experiential form of RE over the past few years and was delighted to share her pedagogy with the students.

Students were shown the famous ‘Island’, and a variety of religion neutral exercised.  Evaluation, spirituality, assessment, and even quantum physics all featured in the day, whilst the session ended withstudents being invited to don bin bags and empathise with the experience of a homeless person.

Students were inspired by this day and are eager to put Sue’s ideas into practice on their final teaching practice.
