Active RE is a programme of 24 RE lessons for KS2 pupils which teaches the Christianity units primary schools have to teach for Years 3-6. The lessons are taught using sport, games and play and are designed to complement what is taught in the classroom. It comes highly recommended by the Diocese of Gloucester, headteachers and pupils, and has also been positively mentioned by SIAMS. For churches it is a great way to build relationships with the local school whilst also helping them with the delivery of RE in a fun way. In some cases it may also provide opportunities to publicise church family events too.
For Years 5 & 6
For Years 3 & 4
PSALMS would love to support more churches in the running of Active RE in their local schools and can assist with this in two ways:
1) If you have someone suitable in the church we can train them up to deliver Active RE.
2) If you don’t have anyone, PSALMS can deliver the lessons in partnership with your church.
Alternatively if you want to explore sports ministry in more general terms, then we can speak with you about how PSALMS can help.
