This half term Y5 have been learning about humanists and what they believe. We were able to explore humanist beliefs in the classroom and had open discussion on how these beliefs may differ from our own. We were also lucky to welcome a visitor into school from the ‘Understanding Humanism Society’. Children were able to ask questions of our visitor in order to deepen their understanding of what it means to be a humanist. They were set the task afterwards to design what they believe a Humanist building might look like. Their imaginations went wild and they created some amazing looking buildings that incorporated humanist values.

Year 1 trip to Synagogue

Year 1 had a fantastic trip to the Adat Yeshua Messianic Synagogue in Norwich earlier in the term. Children learnt the about the important parts of the synagogue and had a chance to look at their Torah scroll.

Children then worked in groups learning about important festivals and Jewish celebrations including Shabbat, Jewish clothes and symbols in the synagogue and the books and hymns that they use.

RE in Year 3

Yesterday in RE, Year 3 were thinking about the question ‘What is morality?’.

They discussed moral dilemmas, where it difficult to decide what is the right or wrong choice, and wrote down the possible solutions to the scenarios.
