This half term we will be studying Sacred Places. Children will be:


Making sense of belief:

  • Recognise that there are special places where people go to worship, and talk about what people do there
  • Identify at least three objects used in worship in two religions and give a simple account of how they are used and something about what they mean
  • Identify a belief about worship and a belief about God, connecting these beliefs simply to a place of worship.


Understanding the impact:

  • Give examples of stories, objects, symbols and actions used in churches, mosques and/or synagogues which show what people believe
  • Give simple examples of how people worship at a church, mosque or synagogue
  • Talk about why some people like to belong to a sacred building or a community.


Making connections:

  • Think, talk and ask good questions about what happens in a church, synagogue or mosque, saying what they think about these questions, giving good reasons for their ideas
  • Talk about what makes some places special to people, and what the difference is between religious and non-religious special places
  • Talk about what they have learned and what has helped them to learn.
