Primary School Material

These materials have been developed to link to key themes in the West Berkshire Agreed Syllabus for RE at KS 2

Theme based approach

The Martyrs materials have been developed for delivery as a thematic unit around the issues of Freedom, Faith and Justice as the people of West Berkshire in 1556 react to the new religious laws enacted by Queen Mary Tudor and to the impending arrival of the three martyrs for trial. 

Where to start?

You may well wish to start with the Martyrs RE Trail lesson plan as a general introduction to the locations and with the timeline as an introduction to the events.

Other useful material

You may well find that the Key Stage 3 material is readily adaptable to Yr 6 age group and that some of this can be woven into the unit.
