Information for parents and teachers about Codi Cwestiwn, interactive Welsh language Religious Education (RE) games for Key Stage 2 (KS2).

Codi Cwestiwn (Ask the Question)



Codi Cwestiwn is part of a collection of Welsh language websites for children aged 7-11. Other resources for Key Stage 2 include:

Codi Cwestiwn has five games designed to develop and deepen understanding of the role and impact of religion, encourage reflection and provide opportunities for spiritual development.

The emphasis is on Christianity but the site includes input from Buddhism, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism and it also gives some secular perspectives where appropriate.

The game does not ask a player to choose a religion or choose between religions, but rather to understand and consider the values which different religions have.

The activities will help you to:
• identify key religious values connected with the natural world
• understand about responsibility for the planet and how it can be shared
• understand about what some religions say about the place of humans in the world e.g. their specialness or uniqueness.

Challenges
There are five challenges:

Cerdded yn y Goedwig(Walk in the Woods)
The artist wants to answers to his questions: How do people who believe in God value the natural world? Why? How do they express those values? As you roam around the woods talk with the people you meet to discover the answers to his questions.

This is a chance for you to think about: How valuable do you think the world is? What do people who believe in God have to say about looking after the environment?

Tref Wedi Mynd â'i Phen Iddi (Derelict Town)
The woman sitting in the car seat asks you find out why such a beautiful world has got into such a state and whether there are any people who want to do something about it.

Llygredd yn y Pentref (Spillage in the Village)
The television director would like to know if God created such a beautiful world, why do such terrible things happen? How do such events affect people's relationship with God? Why do people believe in God? Ask the villagers if they have the answers.

Playing the game
There are two modes of play for you to choose.

Challenge mode
Wander around the different locations to find the different characters.

Text mode
Play the game using the text only without having to wander around the different locations in search of the characters.

Choose your character
You can build your character that will appear in the game.

Choose mentor
The mentor is your guide throughout Codi Cwestiwn and is always available to help you.

Moving around
You can move around the games by clicking on the square that you want to move to. To talk with the characters, click on the light blue square next to them.

Characters
In each challenge you will meet a character who has a particular question about the world. Your task is to find the answer to the question by talking to all the other characters. These characters will have a religious perspective on the matter which is being discussed. Then, return to the questioner and who will give you a reward when he or she is happy that you have answered their question.

In order to complete the challenge you need to talk to a character called the Gatekeeper. It's only by talking to the Gatekeeper that you can get through a barrier and complete the challenge. This character is primarily designed to help you to reflect on what you've learnt and apply it to your own experience and your understanding of religion.
