Religious Education topic for Autumn 1 - why do some people believe God exists?
Why do some people believe God exists?
This investigation enables pupils to learn in depth from different religious and non-religious groups about belief in God. Pupils enquire into the key question- raising questions about the nature and existence of God focussing on Christian ideas about God. Pupils will consider why people do or don’t believe in God and the impact that might have on the way they live their everyday life. This investigation provides an opportunity to meet Christians, agnostics and atheists and ask questions about why they do or don’t believe in God. The investigation implements the principal aim of RE, which is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and world views address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop responses of their own.
