One World Week
At Adswood Primary School everybody from EYFS-Y6 celebrate and enjoy the buzz of a special week ‘One world week’. Well, where do we start with this week?
Our fascinatingly engaging, stimulating and exciting week begins with whole school assemblies of different faiths, cultures and beliefs. These hands on and practical assemblies allow children and staff to engage in learning and activities that leave long term lasting experiences and fond memories.
Some of the activities that children participate in include the learning about the religion and culture of Christians (Christianity), Muslims (Islam), Jewish (Judaism), Hindus (Hinduism), Buddhist (Buddhism) and people from the Bahai faith (Bahai).
During One world week as well as welcoming inspiring guest and speakers to our school from different faiths and cultures, children have the privilege of visiting various places of worship of different religions.
This year some of our most exciting trips to places of worship included visits to:
Cheadle Mosque Association: Children learnt and experienced the way Muslim people live in accordance to their religious duties. Children learnt to write their names in Arabic, participated in ‘Ablution’ (Muslim way of cleansing their body) and prayer and role played dressing up in the Muslim manner.
Manchester Reform Synagogue: Children were able to learn all about the Jewish faith and religion. They learnt about Sabbath, the Torah and the Jewish way of life through practising their religious duties.
Davenport Methodist Church: Our whole school exciting and stimulating trip to the church allowed children to look around the church, go on a hunt finding symbols and their meaning, familiarise themselves with the building and its purpose as well as participating in inspiring talks to understand the significance of Jesus to Christians.
