Within the Christianity section of the Curriculum for Excellence ‘Experiences and Outcomes’ several key learning points are covered, namely:
Values & Issues;
Practices and Traditions
Within the ‘Development of Beliefs & Values’ part of the curriculum, the Challenger Educational programme can assist teachers to meet a number of the specific objectives for the age group they are teaching. For example:
2-01b Key Christian figures – “should include more contemporary Christian figures”
2-09d This would best be achieved through linking the actions of people, ‘famous’ or otherwise, to the beliefs and values which underpin those actions.
3-09a Ultimate questions refers to existential issues such as, ‘What is life for?’, ‘Is there a God?’, ‘What happens after death?’ and so on. This can benefit from starting off by children and young people themselves raising the issues for discussion and this can be at any stage. These questions go to the heart of RME in relation to the search for ‘meaning, value and purpose in life’.
