This unit of work demonstrates one approach that can be taken with Year 5 students inquiring into the CW key idea: People express their spirituality in various contexts within and beyond Christianity. The teacher has annotated the unit, reflecting on aspects of it as the students received and responded to the variety of experiences.
Starting with the opportunity to express thoughts about heaven and life, students move on to investigations into aspects of spirituality as experienced by Christians using a range of resources such as movies, biblical passages, and their own observations and experiences. Assessment for the unit involves the use of a lotus diagram, and the rubric used in conjunction with it is also provided.
