In Autumn 1, children in Year 3 have really enjoyed their Initiation Rights topic.

Children looked at various religious ceremonies for babies when they are born (Islamic naming ceremony and Christian baptism ceremony).
Learning from the past and having a vision for the future
In Autumn 1, Year 4 children have taken part in deep discussion about the past and having a vision for the future. Children studied the story of Noah’s Ark; they reflected on qualities he showed and how he showed hope for the future. The children came up with detailed thoughts on what they can learn from Noah and how they can show courage in their lives too!
In Autumn 1, children in Year 6 have been exploring Judaism. They have reflected on the qualities of Moses and what made him a good leader. They have also looked at the importance of the Sedar meal and the symbolism involved in it. Furthermore, children also compared their own dietary requirement to those that are adopted by Jews (Kosher and Treif).
