Religious Studies Year 9

Aims:
In Year 9 we aim to continue developing high order thinking skills through the rigorous study of Philosophy and Ethical Morality. The girls are given an opportunity to study elements of GCSE content to ensure challenge and enable them to have an informed choice about the commitment needed to further their study into KS4.

Content:
In Year 9 the work will consolidate levels 7 and 8 of our Locally Agreed Walsall syllabus.

The main areas of study are:
  • An introduction to Religious Experience which is a philosophy module.
  • The next unit is a study of Ethics and morality (moral philosophy).
  • An introduction to Buddhism.
Assessment:
Homework is set weekly and should take about 50 minutes; the girls will also undertake an Independent Learning Project based on their Buddhism Visit. Midterm assessment and a summer examination to assess their end of KS level will be conducted.

Extra Curricular:
The girls can join a Year 9 debating philosophy club lead by sixth form A level students.
The girls can also become a Fair Trade/Eco Form Representative. They also have the opportunity to attend a Buddhism Vihara visit.
