Key Stage 1 task: This week’s RE Home Learning task looks at why many Christians think it’s important to care for the world. In this learning, we meet Grace and her guinea pigs! We also think about the words of a very famous Christian hymn. You will think about what is wonderful about this world, and how Christians might care for it.

Key Stage 2 task: Building on from last week’s learning, design your own multi-faith space!

This week, our RE home learning focuses on the Gurdwara; the place of worship for people who follow the Sikh religion.  We will be thinking about how lockdown has made a difference to how Sikhs can use the Gurdwara, and how some Sikhs are continuing to provide service (sewa) to those in need.

This week in our RE home learning, we are going to look at the Muslim festival of Eid-ul-Fitr which took place on 23rd May. The festival marks the sighting of the new moon – bringing to an end a month of fasting from food and drink during daylight hours.

How was Eid different under lockdown this year?

This week our RE Home Learning looks at how Christian charities are working to provide clean water to the people of Uganda.  Water is a basic human right, which means we should all have it. Without water people can’t drink, wash, stay clean or grow crops.

Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world, and one in every four people in the country do not have access to clean water. CAFOD are a Christian charity that works in Uganda.
