REaction’s 20th birthday!

Since 2002, REaction has offered pupils a lively way of actively engaging with RE.
REaction events are run in local churches, in partnership with faith communities and Label of Love, with a lively mix of drama, reflection and music, plus a measure of social action to give some challenge.  There’s also story, creativity and dancing – something for all styles of learning.  REaction gives opportunity for pupils to engage in cross-curricular learning, whilst supporting teachers with ideas for unpacking RE themes.  REaction is a happy marriage between core RE and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
The day starts at 10:00 and finishes at 14:30, aimed at different year groups each term.  Pupils are split into workshop groups and tackle 4 or 5 activities over the course of the day.  REaction begins and ends with plenary sessions that encourage teamwork and respect for others, with fun and games!  Using an enquiry model, teachers then prepare follow-up activities from our local RE syllabus, once back in school.
The cost is just £3 per student.
