exploRE: The Bible
What is it?exploRE: the Bible is a series of six sessions designed for use with young people aged 11 to 14: in RE and RME lessons at school, or run within church youth groups. Used together, the sessions offer a whistle-stop tour of the Christian holy book, giving young people a greater understanding of where it came from, what's inside, and the impact it has had and still has on people all over the world.
How should I use these lessons?The sessions incorporate a mixture of games, activities, discussions and media to help young people to explore some of the key questions each session raises.
In a schools context, each session can be used in isolation and will easily slot into a module on (for example) sacred texts. Sessions 1-4 are accessible for early KS3 and S1, although sessions 5 and 6 are perhaps more suited to older students. Used as a module, these lessons should provide a good foundation on which to build any further study of Christian beliefs and ethics at GCSE or Standard Grade.
