Carrying on from our R.E. focus on 'moral choices' and linking to our engagement with the BNF Healthy Eating Week, this week Chestnut class were given the challenge to produce a presentation lasting at least 1 minute with the aim of persuading people to become vegetarian. It proved quite a challenge asking some children to argue for a point of view different to their own. We looked at a number of resources which put forward the health point of view as well as the religious beliefs of Hindus and Buddhists and the children had 1 hour to complete their task.
I have uploaded a selection of their responses here.
