In the expert hands of Mrs Hallsworth, our lead teacher for R.E., Year 6 have spent the half term learning about sacred texts from different religions.

Alongside the modern day bibles that are always included in the study, they had a look at a church bible from 1867 that made its way into school from Mrs Allen’s attic! It was a beautiful piece of history and provided insight into the language and print of its day as well as being quite a challenge to carry!

Sarim has also taught the class about the religious texts from his faith. He showed everyone a copy of the Qu’ran and demonstrated the reverence and respect Muslims show to their holy book, handling it with gloved hands.

Both books were fascinating, and as one member of the class commented, they were privileged to have Sarim’s expertise to teach them. Scroll through the pictures to share their experience…
