This term in RE we are learning about right and wrong. We started by examining how Christians and Muslims view the term' Forgiveness' in their cultures and discussed how forgiving other people might be hard to do sometimes but it helps everybody to move and continue with their lives when people say or do bad things to us.
We then looked at some real life situations and discussed whether we thought they were right or wrong and why this is. Some of the situations we looked at included deciding on what would be an appropriate level of punishment for certain wrong deeds. Can we be too harsh when we punish people? Are we sometimes too soft when crimes are very serious?
We finished our afternoon off with a bit of drama - everybody likes a bit of drama! We worked in small groups and created drama pieces on the topic of forgiveness. Groups showed what can happen to a person if they carry anger around with them for too long and do not forgive people who have harmed them. The work also explored how people can earn the forgiveness of others by being truly sorry for what they have done and by doing positive things to make up for their mistakes.
