World Religion Day 2018
You may or may not know that World Religions Day falls on Sunday 21st January 2018.  It is important that pupils are aware of religions around the world and are given opportunities to develop respect and tolerances by becoming better informed about how and why people worship in different ways.  The more knowledgeable they are about different religious beliefs the better chance they will have of living in harmony. 


Children already learn about specific religions appropriate to their age groups but over  the next few days  we will be  providing the opportunity to extend their learning even further. 

Investigating Artefacts
