Religious Studies at Key Stage 3
Year 7 begins with an over view of the six main faiths of the world. Students are introduced to the key features of each one, reflecting on similarities and differences between the faiths and their own lives. Their first ILP homework gives an opportunity to investigate Humanism as an alternative to faith in the modern world. Students go on to study Britain as a multi-faith society and investigate the concept of God looking at the view of the previously studied faiths.
Year 8 takes an in-depth look at Christianity and Islam, culminating in the ethics of both faiths on modern day issues. This introduces the knowledge required for their GCSE and dispels myths and fears surrounding these faiths.
