This afternoon workshop is free to all teachers, RE leaders and senior leaders with a primary and SEND RE focus in the Portsmouth area! It takes place in the nave at the Portsmouth Anglican Cathedral and, using a range of speakers, the workshop will help delegates know how to teach about the Christian traditions using the golden threads of belonging, community, special and love as a focus. 

Delegates will consider the range of Christian beliefs and practices, but also look at different expressions of these across the Christian traditions. The workshop will develop the building blocks of knowledge for teachers to teach Christianity with confidence, knowledge and enthusiasm across both KS1 and KS2. 

Led by Justine Ball, HIAS Inspector/Adviser for Primary RE, this half day workshop will have a series of speakers who will talk about the golden threads in their own settings including: 

  • Church of England 
  • Roman Catholic 
  • Orthodox 
  • Pentecostal community 
  • Evangelical community. 

The workshop will include discussions, networking with other RE teachers and ideas to use now. You will leave the workshop with a renewed understanding of Living Difference IV and resources you can use to underpin it, as well as lots of practical ideas for teaching RE in your school.
