Packed with ideas for the primary school teacher, this book includes stories, songs and dramatic activities from six major world religions: Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. The book is helpfully split into topic areas which include: - New beginnings - Places of worship - Friends - Festivals - Rites of passage - Water themes - Animals and birds - Inspirational leaders There is also a useful section of background information for teachers on the different world religions featured as well as pronunciation guides for some of the songs featured. Multi-faith Activity Assemblies brings together Elizabeth Peirce's previous books, Activity Assemblies for Christian Collective Worship 5-II and Activity Assemblies for Multi-racial Schools 5-II. Taking the best ideas from both and adding plenty of new material, it will be invaluable to any primary school teacher or trainee teacher who is looking for a collection of assembly ideas that promote tolerance and understanding of the multi-faith society in which we live.
Elizabeth Peirce has extensive teaching experience and was formerly General Primary Schools' Advisor (Early Years) for East Sussex Education Authority.
