On Multi Faith Cross Curricular day, the key message of Respect and Tolerance was enhanced through looking at the six main religions.
Children made a ‘thank you’ card for their neighbours and learnt the role of neighbours in Islam, Christianity, Judaism and other religions.
They explored the different religions and what the places of worship are and took part in many activities:
–learnt the places of worship, symbol, special book and language for different religions
-Researched the internet, and prepared a poster showing the various activities that happen in different places of worship. E.g. youth clubs, study groups, community car
-Pupils made a role play up about visiting their neighbours who are from a different faith. They have been invited for dinner and the dress code is ‘religious clothing’. This enabled them to learn the similarities and differences in faiths
-To be tolerant, understanding and accepting of all faiths and to appreciate different traditions, customs, history, festivals and importance. The children took part in various activities and created/designed their own festival outfits, completed word searches and role-plays.
