We have been looking at different religious food laws as part of our humanities work in Class 9. We started off the session by asking the pupils what we thought is meant by the phrase food law. We had a class discussion about our own school rules, and how these help the school to be a happy place. Class 9 then suggested that some religions have a food law, to help members of the group eat a diet that respects their religious belief. We looked at Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam and Christianity. We found out that each religion has its own food laws that are respected by the followers. The pupils were then shown a number of different meals on the class whiteboard. We talked about what ingredients are needed for each meal, and then whether these would be suitable for certain religions to eat. One of our Class 9 pupils explains more in the podcast below.
