Key Question: Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?
LO: Suggest reasons why some believers see generosity and charity as more important than buildings and art
What have we learned from this unit of work?
• Recap the learning pupils have done about holy buildings, art and charity. What can they remember? What was most interesting? What has changed their thoughts (give the children the opening statement they wrote at the beginning of the unit. Do they want to add to it, or to change it?)?
• In English, pupils write persuasively and debate issues. Ask them to use these skills in the nest section of the work. The motion for debate could be ‘Muslims and Christians should sell their mosques and churches and give the money to their charities to help hungry people.’
• A good argument. Ask pupils to develop written reasons and arguments for and against: the table below may help them, but it is best to let them develop their own reasons first. All children should be asked to find reasons on both sides of the argument – key skills in RE: understanding what others think; disagreeing respectfully.
• Arrange the debate as you would in an English lesson.
• Ask pupils after the debate to do a piece of extended writing that uses the reasons given above and explores their own ideas in response to the big question of the unit.
