KS2: Golden spires - what does it mean for Christians to believe that God is holy and loving?
(Cornwall Agreed Syllabus for RE - Unit 2.1)
The golden spires of Truro Cathedral can be seen for miles around, towering majestically over the city streets and reflecting the evening sunlight. Once you step inside the cathedral the features of this beautiful building immediately grab your attention. None of this is accidental. In this workshop, you will take a guided journey of discovery around the cathedral and learn how different aspects of the sacred features, symbolism and architecture of the building were carefully constructed and designed to communicate Christian beliefs about God.

KS2: How does Truro Cathedral support its local community?
(Curriculum Kernewek CK4RE - Unit U2.12)
Lesson outline and accompanying resources explore the role of Truro Cathedral as a place of safety, hope, peace, and identity for many people in the local community, through pastoral and social action functions and opportunities to explore spirituality in a range of different ways (e.g. art/music/architecture). Additionally, its role as a central gathering point when significant local and national events occur or are remembered, e.g. Holocaust Memorial Day will be considered.
Resources coming soon.
KS3: Should Christians be greener than everyone else?
This teaching resource is designed to encourage students of 12–14 years old to understand and engage with the interface between the Christian faith and the paramount need for people of all faiths and none to care better for the environment and to take steps to redress the damage that has been done to the natural world by the activities of humanity, especially over the last 150 years.
Resources coming soon.
Two resources are available for the launch, with at least one additional resource per term to follow.
