R.E. with Year 6 - The Easter Story. Finding it very hard to get them to focus on the biblical/Christian aspects of this and have found so far that they haven't a clue about it. Mind you, the last 'Easter Assembly' we had made no mention of the religious festival at all so I shouldn't be surprised. I've always found it a tricky one to teach to any age group, as the children often focus on the gory aspects of Easter or, as in this case, the chocolate/bunnies/eggs bits. Has anyone found a way of doing the proper Easter bit in a school where RE is very low prority and therefore the children's background knowledge by the time they get to Year 6 is pretty much non-existent? Seriously tempted to just get hold of a copy of Jesus of Nazareth!
