R.E. - Y5&6 Spring Term


Unit of Work – Humanism


Zoom interview – recorded on 22.2.21

between Julia Beckett, Accredited schools’ speaker, Humanist UK and Mrs Peachman



The children had the opportunity to write down their questions about humanism and what it means to live as a humanist. All their questions were emailed to Julia in advance of the zoom meeting. She then addressed the questions during the interview.


“They are brilliant questions -really, really brilliant questions – love them!”

Julia Beckett, Accredited Humanist speaker, Humanist


Some of our questions:

  • What made you decide to be a humanist?
  • Is it (do you think) important to belong to a particular group?
  • What values do humanists follow?
  • Do people get treated differently if they are humanist and because they don’t believe in God?
  • Does the thought of no afterlife scare you?
