A space for resources to help RE teachers and their students explore the Christian faith

In this section we have compiled additional resources to equip you with engaging activities and help you in supporting your students relevantly.

Church Colours of the Year

Primary School Activities

The Anglican Church, together with the Roman Catholic Church and others, use a calendar that divides the year into different seasons. The vicar or priest marks the different seasons and events of the church calendar by wearing different coloured robes.
