'Very thorough – I liked it... A very good resources for cover lessons... 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.'

'A generically good resource with a fantastic concept... it was clearly well thought out and developed... Perfect for the needs of a supply teacher.' A Jones, Head of Religious Studies & Independent 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 so not necessarily needed previous knowledge but is able to be adapted easily.' P Allen, RE Teacher & Independent Reviewer
