My school have decided to teach the theology section (both topics) of the new Religious Studies (TPR) CE curriculum and also the Ethics topic in the Philosophy section. I have some questions about planning the scheme of work. Option 1 is to teach it thematically across all three topics, so for example, the environment ethical study would be taught as part of a study of Genesis (from both God's Relationship with the World and Human Responses to God) . Could including the ethics study at around the same time potentially be confusing/lack clarity with regards to the theology topics? Option 2 would be to to teach the theology topics separately so that I would first focus on topic 1, then move on to topic 2, either incorporating the ethics topics or simply teaching ethics after finishing theology. I am reluctant to leave all the ethics work to year 8 as I fear year 7 may not particularly engaging if it is solely focussed on the Bible. Apologise for my ramblings and any thoughts would be appreciated.
