The year 8s have just finished studying the unit ‘How do we answer questions with no definitive answer?’ as part of our year 8 enquiry into ‘Where do we find guidance?’ Students studied a series of ultimate questions and used philosophical tools such as case studies, religious pieces of scripture, analogies and statistics to explain different viewpoints.
One of the questions was ‘Does God Exist?’ and students were given the challenge of creating a piece of art work or poem which demonstrates why they believe whether God does or does not exist. The RE department were blown away by the entries. Here is a small sample:
1st: Unaysah P
The image you created powerfully showed your response to the ultimate question. We could clearly see what your image was representing. Your image was very unique and full of vibrant colours. The quote helps connect your ideas and shows extra dedicated research.
2nd: Vritika S
The poem you have created is detailed and we can clearly see your views on whether you believe that God exists or not. The pictures behind, work in harmony with the meaning of your poem. It adds the extra wow factor to your poem.
3rd: Lily S
The poem that you created was extremely unique and well thought out. It showed deep thought and conveys a powerful message.
