RE

What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today?

Festivals of light from around the world

What can we learn from religions about deciding what is right and wrong?

Why is Jesus inspiring to some people?

Why are festivals important to religious communities?

Why do some people think that life is like a journey and what significant experiences mark this?

Welcome to Term 2 2019

We have an exciting term ahead of us. We are exploring the different festivals of light that are celebrated in different countries. This topic has a heavy RE interest and focuses on Diwali and Hanukkah. Alongside this topic we will be investigating electricity in science. 

We are planning to have a Festival of light day in November with year 3.
