Welcome to our RE blog…

if you teach our agreed syllabus, you’ve come to the best place for support!

The Sistine Chapel comes to Hull!

Renaissance master Michelangelo spent four years of his life high up on scaffolding under the vaulted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, painting one of the most famous frescoes in the world.

Now you can see a replica of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in a unique exhibition (click here)

Sistine Chapel: A Different View

Hull Minster from 8th October – 18th November

High resolution photos, transferred onto special fabric webs, create highly-detailed display panels, allowing true-to-life reproductions of the paintings and a close-up view of Michelangelo’s brushwork.

A programme of educational workshops accompany it: Sistine Workshops – Hull Minster

Fun RE in the Foundation Stage

led by Gill Vaisey, Early Years specialist & author of the Puddles books.


The Methodist Modern Art Collection

The exhibition Battered and Berthed in Princes Quay, offered the opportunity to reflect on Hull’s relationship with the sea.  Works by artists such as Graham Sutherland, Eric Gill, Elisabeth Frink, William Roberts and Patrick Heron, including The Dalit Madonna by Jyoti Sahi, explored the spirituality of Hull’s heritage.

Teacher Susie Steel has written resources linking the paintings to our syllabus units of work; you could look up the paintings online and show your pupils:

Untitled – Pentecost     Dalit Madonna     The Pool at Bethesda
