In Year 7 we develop the learning that has taken place at Primary school. Initially we focus on Christianity by looking in detail at the origins of Christian beliefs and using stories from the Bible to develop students’ understanding of the foundations of these beliefs. We then look at Christian festivals, including Christmas and Easter and Christian rites of passage including baptism and marriage. Finally we look at the different religions of the world, including an in depth look at Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. Throughout the year we promote tolerance and equality, allowing all students to learn about different religions whilst also expressing and developing their own ideas about faith and worship.
