Big Questions RME day conference

Many in S5 and S6 are investigating life’s big questions in a new and critical manner, trying to make sense of the world. Big Questions days offer an opportunity for students to unpack and challenge current world views in a conference-style environment, which can help to prepare for the transition from school to work or university.

A Big Questions conference takes place in school. To emphasise the conference approach, students are given a conference pack and provided with refreshments. The pack is theirs to keep and consists of a pen, name badge and any materials needed in a plastic folder.

Inspire Aspire

Inspire Aspire is a national award that young people can achieve at gold, silver or bronze level. It can be run as part of either RME  or PSHD. Pupils pick a ‘hero’, such as a sports person or figure from religion or history, complete a poster about that person’s life and values and deliver an oral presentation based on their research. They also have to complete a reflection about their own lives and values.

Rights Respecting Award

Primary and secondary schools across Scotland are beginning to engage with the processes of the ‘Rights Respecting School Award’ (RRSA).

This UNICEF initiative is being heavily promoted by the Scottish Government and fits well with the capacities inherent in Curriculum for Excellence and the current schools’ focus on issues such as Restorative Justice, Health and Wellbeing, and Citizenship. Based on the UN Charter of the Rights of the Child, it encourages schools to bring staff, pupils and community together to explore rights and responsibilities as well as to create core values and ethos for a school. It’s an ideal area for the involvement of chaplains, Religious Observance teams and churches.

Bubblegum ā€˜nā€™ Fluff; A Christmas activity

Sometimes it feels that there is more fluff than substance to Christmas time and that the deeper meaning of Christmas is lost. While still enjoying all the “fun” aspects of our Western Christmas, Bubblegum 'n' Fluff provides churches and chaplains a way to help primary 6 children to uncover the real message of Christmas; the celebration of God's incarnation in the person of Jesus.  The event duration is 2 hours and features games, sketches, spontaneous drama, craft ideas, storytelling, theme song, worksheets, and much more.

Bible Alive

Bible Alive is a programme to teach children in P5-7 the storyline of the Bible in a series of interactive lessons using props, costumes, music, drama, storytelling, puppets and more.  It is flexible (people train to use Bible Alive and then develop their own programme) and the whole Bible is usually taught in schools in one hour lessons over 5-8 weeks.

A fixed aspect of Bible Alive is “Rhyme ‘n’ Sign”, a set of 10 rhyming couplets which summarise the story of the Bible, accompanied by British Sign Language signs.  There is also an activity book for pupils.

Bibleworld

Bibleworld comes on the back of an articulated lorry, you can’t miss it! The fact that it has Bibleworld written on it in 10 foot high lettering makes an impact where ever it is parked. The trailer has 6 different and very interactive sections inside.
