Year 1 Interfaith Week

Year 1 have been learning about different sacred places of worship during Interfaith Week. We had the opportunity to visit the East London Mosque and St Anne’s Church. We also learnt about Synagogues. During the week, we had the chance to interview some speakers from different religions to find about their faith and places of worship.


Tell us one fact that you learnt about a religion this week.

As part of our SEAL Assembly we have been discussing the topic of change.

Changes take place all the time. Some changes are so regular that we think they are just normal. Other changes can seem more difficult. They might seem a bit frightening because we are not sure what to expect. Changes such as starting a new class might worry us.

What changes are you looking forward to? Are they changes that make you feel uncomfortable?

We discussed some of the changes that would happen as year 1 and 2 start a new year in a new class.

Remembering Shakespeare

Year 1 studied William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) and the story ‘The Tempest’ as part of Shakespeare Week.


The Tempest begins with a storm. Year 1 produced art work around the storm.

Year 1, what do you remember about Shakespeare week? What did you enjoy learning?
