Judaism and the Holocaust at Hindley

As part of their journey of learning how to be Secondary RE Teachers, Year 2 students planned a series of five lessons on Judaism and the Holocaust which they delivered to Year 8 pupils in one off-timetable day.

It was a great experience for the students and the pupils – the feedback from everyone was hugely positive and has set up the students for their teaching placement in high schools at the end of the academic year.

SEND at Harrop Fold

You may have seen the television series Educating Greater Manchester.  The Director of Inclusion at the school Miranda Rathmell is a former PGCE RE trainee from Edge Hill.

We were delighted that she was able to give up a day to help our Year 1 QTS Undergraduate RE students understand SEND and spend some time helping pupils at the school with additional needs.

We were also able to tour the school and meet a few od the stars (both staff and pupils) of the TV series, which is returning for a second series later in the year.
