Class 7's R.E artefact handling afternoon

Earlier today, Class 7 began their R.E topic 'Islam and Christianity' by handling religious artefacts from both religions. They delved straight in by asking some very thought provoking questions about what there was on their table:

- What do we use the cross for?

- What do Christian's use the Bible for?

- Where did Islam start?

- How long are Muslim prayers?

- Why do Muslim's pray on colourful mats?

The knowledge that the children had was impressive and everyone was extremely respectful when handling the artefacts and asking others about them.
