  In Early Years, we generally focus on the celebrations e.g. Diwali, Christmas, Easter, Chinese New year and discuss the beliefs and practices within each of them. We thought about celebrations – Reception had a wedding!
From Year 1 to Year 6, children look at different aspects of religion e.g. symbols and artefacts, inspirational  people, prayer and worship, stories, religion and family, belonging within the six main religions – Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism and Buddhism.
A lot of this work is completed through circle times and discussions and debates encouraging children to make comparisons, identify differences and similarities and think about philosophical issues raised through religion.
