"Who am I"? - Year 7 Poetry Competition?

An ultimate question that puzzles even the most prolific of philosophers, but one which Year 7 students took on with enthusiasm and insight. A flurry of “I am me, I am unique” filled the Religious Studies classrooms as students grasped the concept of appreciating they are much more than just a name. It was astounding to hear students asking questions that A Level students would find difficult to answer: “What is my soul?” “How can God know me as an individual person?”  

 An ultimate question that puzzles even the most prolific of philosophers, but one which Year 7 students took on with enthusiasm and insight. A flurry of “I am me, I am unique” filled the Religious Studies classrooms as students grasped the concept of appreciating they are much more than just a name. It was astounding to hear students asking questions that A Level students would find difficult to answer: “What is my soul?” “How can God know me as an individual person?”  

These questions formulated the Year 7 poetry competition in RS to explain the ultimate question of ‘who am I?’ This ran as a college competition and allowed students to express themselves freely and learn to respect other  student’s beliefs and ideas. Miss Kitter kindly chose the winners and I am pleased to announce the following:

  • 1st place: Jamie Young 7 Franklin 1
  • 2nd place: Samara Hooper 7 Nobel 2
  • 3rd place: Atif Khan 7 Franklin 2

A big well done to the winners and to the whole of Year 7 for your fantastic work in Religious Studies thus far.
