Today the children will be having a day full of RE activities. We will be thinking about the different religions we learnt about last year: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The children will also be thinking about the different festivals of light.
We want the children at home to also have a day full of RE, so here’s what we will be doing in class!
Today we will be starting with Judaism and taking a quiz to see what we remember!
Before you start the quiz, ask yourself the following questions:
- What is Judaism?
- What are its followers called?
- What do Jewish people believe about God?
- Where do Jewish people worship?
- Do you remember any of the major Jewish celebrations?

Can you create a mind map on everything you know about Christianity? Think about the following:

- Sabbath days
- The main messages of Christianity
Can you answer the following questions?

Create a poster explaining the 5 pillars of Islam to another student!
Are there any stories that are important to Christians and Jews? Which ones can you remember? Look at the pictures below to help you!
Create a comic strip to show what happens in each story?
Once you have completed your comic strip, you can watch the videos below to see how much you remembered!
