In Autumn 2, Year 2 visited the local Church – St Paul and St James’ Church. The reverend spoke to the children about why Jesus told stories, as this was the topic focus for the half term. They were able to look at the features of a Church and had the opportunity to ask different questions.
Also, Donna Gwilliams from ‘Faith in schools’ did a session with reception. The children looked at Christmas through role play and games. They explored what Christmas means for Christians and compared it to what Christmas means for them.
In Spring 1 a member from the Sikh Gurdwara visited year 1’s to speak about what it is like to belong to Sikhism. This was a good opportunity for children to ask questions, he spoke about his own personal experiences and showed the children pictures of the Temple.
