We have 3 great new books from Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) at life aimed at those teaching children whether in primary school or at church.
Teaching Narnia By Olivia Warburton is a cross-curricular classroom and assembly resource for those teaching RE to KS2. It includes background information on C.S. Lewis’s life, 15 lesson plans, drama workshop activities, assemblies and follow-up ideas for Christmas and Easter as well as plot summaries of each of the Narnia books.
Why Teach Narnia in RE?
“... While being presented as fantasy stories the books contain strong Christian themes exploring the nature of Christianity and God’s relationship with human beings in a parallel universe. .. the books work on different levels...Lewis includes characters from Greek and Roman mythology as well as traditional British and Irish fairy tales and even Father Christmas makes an appearance.
They offer parallels with the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ, helping the children to learn about key Christian beliefs and to learn from them by tackling big questions such as: what is really real? How do we see the world? Who is in charge of the world? Is God really good? Does he exist at all? What happens after death? How do we know what is right and wrong?.”
The stories also provide strong links to PHSE and Citizenship, Literacy, Art, Drama and Science.

Christianity: Key Beliefs and Traditions By Cavan Wood seeks to inform and equip RE teachers of KS2 by looking at theological ideas such as creation and salvation as well as at the life of Jesus and the growth of the church. Over 30 topics are covered, each including background information, classroom activities and learning objectives. The emphasis is not just on the history of Christianity but on the Christian faith as it is lived now and on evaluating its key ideas, linking them to pupils’ experience and understanding.
