Scheme of work. RE/Philosophy KS3: Where do we come from?
In a three part philosophy unit I have written and designed, comes the third unit answering the question: Where do we come from?
There are 7 lessons in total including a final assessment which encompasses all the unit (see my other uploaded resources). The school I was working for at the time focused a great deal on literacy so this is a theme throughout all lessons with extended reading and writing. There is a good basis for discussion questions for students. It would also be a scheme suitable for KS2, I found taught this for three years now and find students really love discussing ultimate questions - particularly if there is evidence for the afterlife.

The scheme focuses on the scale of the universe and where we lie within it, but also where does God lie. It has a look at creation stories including evolution. The lesson on the teleological argument uses the poem the watchmaker to explain to students the point of view of Dawkins.
