Children Talking

Posted on April 11, 2008 by Amy Tolmie

'Children Talking' is a web-based database of pupils' responses to key questions raised in RE, with a search facility and the option for pupils to add their own responses to the original questions. What that means is that you can get a list of quotes about a whole range of subjects from young people in the UK. And you can specify the age, gender and religion of the children or young people you want to hear from. Their comments could be really useful as part of an assembly or lesson.

The principle questions covered include:

1: Showing the best way to live
2: A presence or a power different from my everyday self
3: Viewpoints about death
4: Hopes for the future
5: Peace and conflict
6: God is like...
7: Prayer makes me feel...
8: The value of people
9: Learning from experience
10: Freedom, truth, justice, love and forgiveness
