We have been learning about what different religions believe. We have looked at Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity. We discovered that each of these religions has a special story linked to special celebrations. Each celebration has food, gifts, lights and a very important meaning to each of the religions' beliefs.
We listened to and wrote about Rama and Sita, The lanterns of the Caliph, how the menorah came about and Christmas. We thought about special people and times in our lives too. We made Diwali lamps.
We also learned about day, night and seasons. We discovered that the moon goes round the earth and the earth spins. We then discovered that the earth is tilted a little and as it orbits the sun it can go closer or further away- and that's how we get Summer and Winter.
