Religious Studies Year 8

Aims:
In Year 8 we aim to build on the knowledge and understanding and skills that have been developed in Year 7. We aim to continue developing an enquiring mind though the key attainment targets of learning about Religion and Learning from Religion. We encourage debate, discussion, enquiry and reflection in order to develop harmony, tolerance and respect.

Content:
  • In Year 8, the work will consolidate levels 5 and 6 from our Locally Agreed Walsall syllabus. The main areas of study are:
  • An introduction of pilgrimage with a special study on the Hajj and its importance for Muslims.
  • The Christian festival of Easter and its relevance and importance for Christians.
  • A study of Religion and Issues of Injustice such as working for a just and fair world.
  • Finally a study of Religion, Science and the Environment.
Assessment:
Homework is set regularly, mostly once a week and should take appropriately 40 minutes. Mid-term assessments will be set as well as an end of year summer examination to assess overall progress.

Extra Curricular:
Year 8 have the opportunity to participate in an RS Day under the theme of Religion and Justice. During this day the girls engage in Fair Trade activities, song writing and film making resulting in an internal competition. Students can also become a Fair Trade and Eco representative.
