Beliefs and actions in the world

Can Christian Aid and Islamic Relief change the world?

KS2: ages 7-11WebsiteWordPDFAvailable in Welsh

This religious education (RE) unit is designed to enable pupils to learn how religious aid agencies are changing the world for the better.

Pupils will learn about the work of two major faith-based charities, Islamic Relief and Christian Aid. They will develop their understanding of the impact of religion in the world and consider important questions of justice and fairness, thinking for themselves. They will have opportunities to develop attitudes and opinions of their own and to consider key beliefs and teachings in Islamic and Christian traditions.

Through their study, they compare the two charities and their work, looking at sources of inspiration to act justly for Muslims and for Christians. Learners will consider the personal challenge to make the world a better place.

The unit has the potential for exciting cross-curricula work with Geography, ICT, Citizenship and Art. The unit focuses on concepts of values and commitment.

There is a version in Welsh available.
