KS4 RE Lesson Plan – Do we Have a Duty to Help People in Need?

Key Stage



Years 10-11

Discussing what celebrities do with their money can help students understand religious teachings on wealth and charity…

We are regularly bombarded with images online, on television and in printed media showing the divide between the wealthy and the poor – from the annual rich lists and Euromillions winners to images depicting refugees, or the use of foodbanks.

Students will often have their own opinions on wealth and charity, especially if they are starting to earn money with a part-time job. Some will aspire to be footballers or celebrities – will they keep their cash and embark on a life of luxury, or might they feel that they have a duty to help those in need?

This lesson will explore their ideas whilst investigating religious beliefs and teachings about wealth and charity.

This download includes the full lesson plan and accompanying resource.

Why teach this?

The concept of charity and duty appears across the GCSE specifications and Key Stage 4 students will have an understanding of monetary value and wealth. This lesson asks students if we have a duty to help those in need.
