RE - Creation and Science: conflicting or complementary?

(0)
This 6 week unit of work enables the children to explore the comparison of Christian and scientific approach to explaining how the world was created. The following objectives are covered over the 6 weeks: Make sense of belief: • Identify what type of text some Christians say Genesis 1 is, and its purpose • Taking account of the context, suggest what Genesis 1 might mean, and compare their ideas with ways in which Christians interpret it, showing awareness of different interpretations Understand the impact: • Make clear connections between Genesis 1 and Christian belief about God as Creator • Show understanding of why many Christians find science and faith go together Make connections: • Identify key ideas arising from their study of Genesis 1 and comment on how far these are helpful or inspiring, justifying their responses • Weigh up how far the Genesis 1 creation narrative is in conflict, or is complementary, with a scientific account, giving good reasons for their views. There is also an opportunity to make links within your local community by inviting a member of Christian faith into school to discuss their own beliefs and how these links to scientific explanations of how the world was created. All resources are listed here and are referenced in the lesson plans. A great unit that provokes some thoughtful and philosophical discussions.

**STOP MARKING CHILDREN’S WRITING! ** This editing structure splits the process into two sections, proof-reading and composition. The only ‘marking’ the class teacher must do is, read the child’s work, note down any common grammatical and spelling errors, then add examples (good and bad) to the slides. I have used this process for a whole year and I’ve managed to mark 30 children’s writing AND plan an editing lesson in 40 minutes! This 23 slide notebook include all the KS2 writing writing at and above age related standard assessment criteria to help with assessing the children writing. Give it a go and contact me if anything is unclear. Claim back your evenings!
