What is Atheism? KS2 lesson

What is Atheism? KS2 lesson

‘What is Atheism?’ provides an introduction to Atheism and Humanism for Key Stage 2 students. Briefly covering the history of religion and the reasons why atheists choose not to believe in God, the lesson proceeds to ask open-ended and non-judgmental questions about religion in order to encourage class discussion and foster critical-thinking. SMSC: This lesson promotes universal values of tolerance and compassion for all, regardless of religious background or experience. ‘What is Atheism?’ has been adapted with permission from the book 'Atheism For Kids' by Jessica Thorpe and Teal Barnes. Atheism For Kids was written alongside the National Curriculum and is ideal for home educators or those teaching atheism in schools.
