Unit 5D: How do the beliefs of Christians influence their actions?

About this unit

In this unit children gain a knowledge and understanding about Christian teaching on behaviour and action. They develop their understanding that Christians base their behaviour on the teaching of Jesus and the guidance of the church, and that this reflects their Christian beliefs. Through exploring some Christian teachings children develop their understanding that beliefs affect action and behaviour. They build upon their understanding of the links between their own attitudes and behaviour and religious values by developing their ability to ask questions about the basis for moral choices and decisions, and how Christian values may offer a basis for morality.
