Perfect for those last minute cover lesson when a member of the department unexpectedly calls in sick. Gives [students] a cover lesson worth having! Perfect for what I needed as a very busy HOS.

Very thorough – I liked it... A very good resource for cover lessons... I liked the layout of the lesson – including starter, activity and plenary... Ofsted are looking for progression throughout each lesson – what they know of the subject at the start.. and what they know by the finish... Easy for students and teachers to follow.

D Brodowska, RS Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Clear and concise, some great ideas and very little adaptation needed... I liked the layout, the stand alone lessons, that you didn't have to be a graduate in RE to explain... good to leave for others as cover work... It starts from the pupils not necessarily needed so previous knowledge but is able to be adapted easily.

P Allen, RS Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Comprehensive and helpful - a useful pack for any school! I particularly liked: the format of lessons with starter, main and plenary, the inclusion of extension/higher thinking questions, the amount of teacher input needed and resources required, [the fact that it is] clear... Just what is needed for more meaningful RE supply. Covers key elements of national curriculum and lead up to GCSE RE... Lesson 12 is a really engaging, interesting lesson.
