Sacred Art

£5.00

Objective: To gain knowledge and understanding of how people express their religious beliefs. To ask and respond to questions which make sense of who we are.

Key Questions: Is beauty ‘skin deep’ or beyond appearances? AT2: How have religious traditions recognised, interpreted and spoken of beauty? Is joy a choice or a feeling? How do religious traditions express joy?

All learners will: Some pupils will not have made as much progress and will have compared some of the things that influence religious believers. Some pupils will have identified the religious beliefs that may be found in sacred art. 

Most learners will: have compared their own identity and experience with that of others including religious believers. Most pupils will have compared the way religious believers express their beliefs and ideas and explained how these make a difference to believers' lives.

Some learners will: have progressed further and will have given different religious and non-religious views on what makes up a person's identity and forms their experience and given reasons and examples to explain what they think the best ideas are. Some pupils will have shown how sacred art may be connected to the needs and concerns of people living in different times in different situations.

N.B. many lessons are accompanied by short film clips which you may find useful as a part of your lesson.
