This unit is designed as an introduction to Religious Education at Key Stage 2. It introduces pupils to some of the religions they will study during their four years in Key Stage 2. All religions treat the birth of a new life as special and celebrate its importance in different ways. In the religions covered in this unit, God is acknowledged to have an important role in the creation and safe delivery of a new life and is thanked for the new baby. Prior learning: The class will have spent time in Key Stage 1 studying religious belief and practice. This unit will build on their previously gained understanding.
