Welcome to our RE blog…

support for your teaching of the Agreed Syllabus for the Humber region


St Andrew’s Church at Boynton – William Strickland, the builder of Boynton Hall, is said to have brought the first wild turkey to Britain from America in the late 16th century. As a result, there are carved and painted turkeys all over the church, most particularly at the lectern, shaped like a turkey instead of the traditional eagle!



We are the Learn Teach Lead RE North region and there’s plenty going on!

Over the past year…

Fun RE in the Foundation Stage

Our Fun RE day was led by Gill Vaisey, Early Years specialist & author of the Puddles books.


Everyone had plenty of fun and went away enthused and more confident in their understanding of the contribution RE has to make to the Early Years curriculum.
Please be in touch with us, if you’d like to share these resources with your school!


The Hull Baha’i community celebrated the 200th Birthday of Baha’u’llah, the founder of the Baha’i faith

The Methodist Modern Art Collection

The exhibition Battered and Berthed in Princes Quay, gave visitors the opportunity to reflect on the Hull’s maritime heritage, its relationship with the sea, to respond to being battered by storms, the wind and waves, and to challenge ideas of home – finding a berth.

Works by well-known 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.

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
