    RE - Can you express opinions respectfully on important issues

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    This week year 5 were exploring how far Sikh's may go to show commitment to their religion. The law states that motorcyclists need to wear a helmet to drive on the roads, and this caused some controversy amongst the Sikh community as this would not fit over their turban. To show commitment to their God Sikh's wear a turban and so some chose to break the law in order to ride their motorcycles. Year 5 discussed their opinions on this and whether they thought this was fair/unfair/correct/incorrect. They shared their opinions on the subject respectfully which is an important life skill as they will encounter many situations where their opinion will differ from others.
