After completing the GCSE textbook on Catholic Christianity, which included the writing of the Judaism section, I was approached by Collins via Rob Orme. They were working on a new Key Stage 3 series that would take an approach to Key Stage 3 that would ensure not be "the wasted years" (Ofsted 2015). It was exciting to be working on a book that I knew would be directly beneficial to students undertaking the study of Judaism at GCSE - and I knew I would be using this with my own department. I ensured we cover the key ideas that would be revisited in further depth at GCSE, but also I tried to 'fill the gaps' - what didn't the GCSE cover that was important to learn in order to understand Judaism? It is a book I am incredibly proud of, and the feedback so far has been very positive. [October 2017]
