ALMA: RE with Soul brings together learning about aspects of Christianity with a global dimension for Religious Education and Citizenship. It provides a rich resource for an enquiry based approach to exploring Jesus’s commandment to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’, its impact on individuals and communities in the UK and overseas, via Diocesan Companion Links.
The Diocesan Companion Link that was drawn upon to create this resource is ALMA, the Diocese of London’s Companion Link with Mozambique and Angola.
Theological introduction to RE with Soul (Powerpoint) The hyperlink opens the Powerpoint, ‘A theological introduction to RE with Soul’.
The Powerpoint ‘A theological introduction to RE with Soul’ provides a stepwise introduction to how the RE and Global Citizenship work together. The resources take UK-based Primary and Secondary learners towards a deeper understanding of their Mozambican neighbour; this progression is explained through the KS2 and the KS3 materials.
Each KS2 RE unit and KS3 reflection provide a theological overview. The scriptural references and theology explain the Christian beliefs connected with the activity and reflection content, allowing teachers to be confident in the religious belief and practice explored in the lesson.
The enquiry based approach of RE with Soul has been formulated to link with the ‘Understanding Christianity’ framework and to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum Framework for RE produced by the Religious Education Council of England and Wales in October 2013.
