Places of Worship in Slough Included as part of a National Resource for Schools

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Senior School Effectiveness Officer, Jo Curd, for the attention of all teachers of RE.

Slough SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education) is delighted to announce that the ‘Real People, Real Faith project’ classroom resources are now available. These professionally filmed and edited resources, aimed at Key stages 1-3, set out to ask believers from different places of worship, religions and worldview communities questions from the Berkshire syllabus.

The project was mostly filmed before the pandemic and the ensuing lockdown has meant that school visits to places of worship have not been possible, making these clips even more essential than previously thought. Teacher notes are also developed to accompany each video clip.

The clips include believers from the following locations across Berkshire:

  • St Michael the Archangel, Warfield
  • Slough Baptist Church, Slough
  • Reading Hindu Temple
  • Zainabya Community of Reading,
  • Maidenhead Synagogue
  • Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara, Slough

The resources are kindly hosted on the NATRE (National Association of Teachers of Religious Education) website and can be accessed here
