Encountering Faiths & Beliefs for KS2 and KS3

 

     

To succeed in today’s complex and diverse world, young people need to be able to communicate sensitively and effectively with anyone, regardless of beliefs or background.

This resource enables your students to ‘meet’ people (films of our F&BF speakers) of different faiths, beliefs and identities, telling their personal story of their lived experience of their faith or belief. This is a unique experience, as the speakers are opening up about what their beliefs mean to them, and it offers your students to relate, question, draw out similarities and identify differences in their own beliefs. Students will hopefully find a connection with someone they may not ordinarily meet and explore their own identities.

Curriculum mapping: 

Encountering faiths & beliefs map to the following topics and subtopics in the national curriculum for Religious Education.

World religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Interfaith issues, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism
