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.

'Shine a light. Uplifting Christmas song. Mp3, Video,  lyrics and chords

'Shine a light. Uplifting Christmas song. Mp3, Video, lyrics and chords

'Shine a light' is the perfect song for children to sing in groups to celebrate the power of Christmas to bring light into the darkness of winter. It also works as a metaphor of bringing hope to despair, and difficult situations. 'Let Christmas bring light to your darkness ... shine a light into every dark corner'. Includes a downloadable mp3 version, video and lyrics. Backing tracks (with or without backing vocals) and sheet music can be found elsewhere on TES. Visit www.johnnyandtheraindrops.co.uk for more about the band and the author, Liam Maloy (AKA Johnny Raindrop).
