Students will explore the difference between a fact and a belief and how to respond to those who hold different beliefs on philosophical issues such as God, death and the afterlife and moral issues. Students will then write their own personal creed and design a piece of artwork to symbolise this. We will look at a Hunger Cloth in detail to help with this.
By the end of this unit it is expected that all students will: have written their own creed and selected some images to symbolise these.
Most students will: have understood that there are key differences between statements that are beliefs and those that are facts and identify why they are different.
Some learners will have progressed further and will: be able to share their own beliefs in a complex symbolic form.
This unit is assessed through the Hunger Cloth and Personal Creed assessment. Students are not assessed on what they believe, but how they express their beliefs in words and symbolism.
How to help your child
Students will be set a homework task to interview parents/carers or other adults about their beliefs. Your support with this task would be much appreciated.
