KS3/4 RE - Science and Religion: Personhood



Science and RE are often thought to be incompatible, and so RE teachers can be understandably anxious to mix the two.

However, the two subjects can be an exciting and powerful combination. This programme follows one teacher who manages to bring them together with compelling results for his students and viewers alike.

Ian Harris is an RE and science specialist from The Thomas Hardye School, a science college in Dorchester. We observe and analyse his lesson for a Key Stage 4 mixed-ability class, which uses both religion and science to try and answer the question, "When does personhood begin?"
