Just as Greta Thunberg showed that you're never too young to make a difference, Captain Tom showed that you're never too old either. He will live on as an example to us all.

Religious Studies

Teaching students how to think not what to think

Curriculum Leads

Ms V Brown Key Stage 3 Coordinator v.brown@glynschool.org
Miss T Stone Key Stage 4 Coordinator t.stone@glynschool.org
Mrs J Lott Key Stage 5 Coordinator j.lott@glynschool.org

 

Why study this subject?

Religious Studies offers the opportunity to recognise, analyse and evaluate an argument, the point it proposes and the evidence it provides in support. Religious Studies plays an important part in social and cultural education, helping students to understand art, music and literature and to avoid offence and conflict in their communities. Religious Studies enables students to become critically engaged adults, thoughtful and empathetic scholars.

Year 7 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1&2 - Introduction to Religious Studies

To give all students an equal basic knowledge of each of the six religions and to what RS is.

 

Half Term 3&4 - Heroes

To see how people put their faith into action - how faith impacts people - applies the knowledge of each religion.

 

Half Term 5&6 - Alternative Religions

To teach the skill of evaluation and analysis.  What makes a religion? How do you make a judgement.

Year 8 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - 7 deadly sins

Good way to introduce the concept of morality - key component of the GCSE.

 

Half Term 2 - Animal Rights

Apply the concept of morality, plus religious teachings to real life situations and introduce the GCSE concept of stewardship.

 

Half Term 3 - Medical Ethics

Apply the concept of morality, plus religious teachings to real life situations and introduce the GCSE concept of sanctity of life.

 

Half Term 4 - Death Penalty

Apply the concept of morality, plus religious teachings to real life situations and introduce the GCSE concept of stewardship.

 

Half Term 5&6 - Christianity and Islam

These are the two religious that are taught as part of the GCSE so we do an overview of the main ideas of the two religions as a springboard for starting the GCSE in Sept.

 

Year 9 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Christianity: Beliefs and Teachings

This topic underpins many of the other topics we do so they need to have a secure grasp of basic Christianity.

 

Half Term 2 - Issues of Good and Evil

This is the easiest and most accessible unit so a good one to do nearer the beginning to build their confidence. We also want to alternate the more engaging units with the less engaging ones.

 

Half Term 3&4 - Christianity practices and Issues of Life and Death

Links to the previous topic in terms of birth and death rituals.

 

Half Term 5&6 - Issues in Relationships

This is quite an accessible topic so good in the summer term when students are tired but also quite adult in nature (sexual content) so left till the end of year 9 when students have matured.  Also, teachers will have a better relationship with the students in order to deal with some of the more delicate topics.

 

 

 

Year 10 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Islam: Beliefs and Teaching

Many students find Islam quite difficult as there is lots of new vocabularly.

 

Half Term 2 - Issues of Human Rights

 

Half Term 3 - Islam practices

Half Term 6 - Religion in film
