Understanding Christianity Project
The key purpose of this project is to help all teachers support pupils in developing their own thinking and their understanding of Christianity, as a contribution to their understanding of the world and their own experience within it.
We aim to see pupils leave school with a coherent understanding of Christian belief and practice. Pupils from 4-14 explore the significant theological concepts within Christianity as part of developing their wider religious, theological and cultural literacy.
We seek to support teachers in developing their own knowledge and understanding of Christianity theology to be able to teach with confidence.
Who is Understanding Christianity for?
For every teacher in Primary and Secondary classes, teaching RE from EYFS right through to KS3, laying down excellent foundations for further study at GCSE and beyond. It is relevant to RE in every classroom in every school, in Church of England and in Community, Academy and Free schools. These resources explore Christianity widely, including (but not limited to) Anglican Christianity.
We are thrilled to be the first resources to receive
Accreditation for the Understanding Christianity Project
and the cats just couldn’t resist having
an office party to celebrate!
The 'Puddles and Freddie' series is the first to receive the Understanding Christianity Accreditation award.
This means the set of resources has been fully verified as effectively supporting the teaching and learning approach promoted by Understanding Christianity. Themes covered within the Puddles series of books also fully match the core theological concepts identified by the project and with which children will engage.
Books at Press is delighted to be able to support schools as they adopt the Understanding Christianity project to raise standards in teaching and learning about Christianity.
A free grid showing how the Books at Press resources support the specific units and concepts of the the project is available to support you in using each of the Puddles books alongside Understanding Christianity. To obtain a copy of this useful grid simply request a copy via our enquiry form (type in the comments box UC Grid) and or give us a call on 01594 516490 and we’ll email it you with our compliments.
We have also collaborated with several Dioceses and Local Authorities and have extended the grid to show how the Books at Press resources link with the Diocesan Syllabus and / or Locally Agreed Syllabus.
Simply contact us and tell us which syllabus you are using and we will let you know what support is available to you.
Many dioceses across the UK are also working with us to help you benefit from these resources by offering the full set at a greatly reduced cost.
To take advantage of this offer simply either contact us on 01594 516490 or your local Diocesan Adviser to check whether your diocese has teamed up with us as part of this project.
