Crikey Joanna – how quick were you! Thankyou so much that was exactly what I was looking for. Are you at the Wakefield leadership weekend next weekend by any chance? It would be nice to say thanks face to face.
I’m so glad I could help, it’s really nice to know people are using the suggestions they find on here.
Sadly I won’t be at Wakefield (I’m not in the country!) but I am at a lot of places in October, so perhaps we’ll bump into each other somewhere then.
I have just joined the forum and am really looking forward to the RE conference this weekend to network and share ideas. Anyone else sharing ideas on the TeachMeet seminar? Some innovative and really creative ideas on this website. Thank you!
I hope you enjoy visiting our cafe. You’re welcome to start a discussion thread on TeachMeets, their a relatively new innovation in teaching and I’m sure other cafe guests would be interested to hear about them.
Just joined and so pleased about this forum. Will up load my picture soon.
Great to see people joining the cafe conversations and using it to network and support learning. We are always open to new suggestions as to how we can support outstanding RE.
Hello everybody! Lovely to meet you all, I’m a graduate in the course Religion, Philosophy and Ethics and have just joined TrueTube, as the new marketing and research assistant. TrueTube produces free resources for R.E and PSHE teachers https://www.truetube.co.uk/ feel free to register! A big part of my job is visit schools and PGCE students at universities across the UK to present what we do and make sure we’re up to date with what teachers want and need. I’ve just started visiting, and am finding it really inspiring so far. If you would like me to visit your school or university this year, or would just like to talk about what we do, please feel free to contact me through email: email@example.com
Hello Jessica, welcome to the cafe. Have you put the links to your resources in the resources thread?
I have put a link about our resources on multiculturalism, but here is the link to the main site 🙂
I just wanted to know if anyone can help me discuss the concept of the Gurus for Sikhs?
By the way Im new to this.
Hi Thaher, welcome to RE:online! You may well have looked already, but there are several videos on the gurus on TrueTube:
There are also a few resources on the TES website, e.g.:
But it is all information, rather than discussion tasks. Depending upon the age group, maybe tasks could include discussing the importance of religious leaders/sacred texts for different communities? The links between the 9 gurus and the Guru Granth Sahib? Ways the GGS is treated, and how this reflects beliefs about the message of the Gurus?
I did some interesting work with my pupils (special school), exploring their own qualities and then looking at the distinctive qualities and teachings of each of the gurus, making connections between the children’s strengths and those of the gurus.
Hello! I have just joined and it is the first time I have ever taken part in anything like this. Thank you to Culham St Gabriel’s Teach RE course for introducing me. I have just taken over some of the RE teaching in my school and must admit I have found it difficult to find resources and to know where I am going! I can already see that RE online is going to be an amazing resource and something that needs to be shared.
@Thaher, I’ve just noticed your post. One thing that many people don’t know about Sikhs is that there is a branch, the Namdhari Sikhs, who believed that the line of human gurus did not stop with Guru Gobind Singh. They have a human guru even today, Satguru Jagjit Singh ji. This is in contrast to mainstream Sikhism which accepts that Guru Gobind Singh was the final human guru, and that he passed the guru-ship (so to speak) over to the Adi Granth.
