    Hi guys, responding to the thread about inspirational RE rooms I mentioned the work of Sue Phillips.


    know the classroom with the ribbons on the ceiling. I also worked in that school. The RE teacher had been there for years and was brilliant. She arranged the chairs around a central focus area and often used this as a source of inspiration for reflective activity - some inspired by Sue Phillips - and inspirational teacher who created the approach called 'Theatre for Learning. I'll put a bit about her on My Resources!!


    So tonight I was inspired to read more on Sue's website and see what resources are available free. I found that there are three books you can buy which explain Experiential Lessons which Sue created. Part of the book is available as a free download, so I had a look at it. It tells the story of Sarita and her family who are living on the street in Kolkata.


    Since I have lived in Kolkata, taught in a school for street children and have several family members living there, I was inspired to write a reflection on Cardboard City - and Sarita's story. I have uploaded these and hope they will prove useful,
    when you are teaching about poverty and the Third World. I will email both Sue's exercise and my response to relatives and friends in Kolkata and get their responses if I can. Then it will really start to have some quality feedback. It will be a strong resource for this topic and also work on Community Cohesion.
