During World Faith Week, all pupils had the opportunity to learn about different faiths and religions.

The week began with a whole school assembly to celebrate the shared values between different faith communities. Throughout the week, visits took place to immerse pupils into their learning and to discover first-hand, some of the traditions, beliefs, signs and symbols of other faiths. This gave an opportunity to promote understanding and greater interaction between different religions.

Each year group focused on a particular faith, including:

  • Nursery and Reception learnt more about Catholic life;
  • Year 1 explored Christianity;
  • Year 2 learnt about Buddhism;
  • Year 3 enjoyed learning about Hinduism;
  • Year 4 explored Judaism;
  • Year 5 enjoyed learning about the Islamic faith;
  • Year 6 discovered more about the Sikh faith.
