Open access resources for Early Years/Primary Schools
We would like to draw your attention to the free availability of two sets of curriculum resources for use in Early Years/Primary school settings. The free access website and the two series of books Exploring Why and Exploring Our World were developed by staff at the University of Warwick in collaboration with the St Mary’s Centre, Wales. Each story in both the Exploring Why and Exploring Our World series has five different formats of resources associated with it (a short story; an extended story; a pictures only book; a key questions book; and activity sheets and ideas for further learning).
The curriculum materials can be directly accessed at: www.warwick.ac.uk/aledandsian
Further information on the wider research and the project team can be accessed at: www.warwick.ac.uk/forschools
The Sheikh Family Scholarship

Successful candidates will be first-generation university students and who demonstrate the scholarship will make the most difference. For 2018, the invitation for applicants extends only to students who successfully complete the Postgraduate Award in Islamic Education and have been accepted onto the MA Religions, Society & Education (Islamic Education).
