Our children learn about the six major world religions through the use of enquiry and investigation. These include Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. Each half term’s unit begins with an activity to help the children relate their learning to their own experiences before reflecting on the ‘big question’. Each year, the children learn about different aspects of the Christmas and Easter stories.
