Religious education enables children to investigate and reflect on some of the most fundamental questions asked by people. At Worsthorne Primary School we develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the major world faiths, and we address the fundamental questions in life, for example, the meaning of life and the existence of a divine spirit. We enable children to develop a sound knowledge not only of Christianity but also of other world religions, especially those that are the main faiths of children within our school. Children reflect on what it means to have a faith and to develop their own spiritual knowledge and understanding. We help the children learn from religions as well as about religions.
Diwali in EYFS
Lot’s of different activities this week based on Diwali. We celebrated with Diwali Day today (Thursday).
Our Year 4 children have created some Rangoli patterns linked to Diwali. They enjoyed learning all about the festival of light and could recall many facts to me when I popped in to see them.
‘Diwali is the festival of light’
‘They made clay pots for lights’
‘The lights guided Rama and Sita home’
Holi is a Hindu festival that celebrates the eternal and divine love of Radha Krishna. Our Year 5 children have been learning all about this in their R.E lessons. The festival was actually in March but we have only just been able to hold our ‘Colour Run’ to mark
this festival. I think you can see how much fun they have all had!
