People, Culture and Communities
Understanding diversity and difference
This week in Reception we have been talking about our understanding of communities. This has given us an opportunity to say what we know about the different communities we belong to - such as within our families, school, clubs and religious groups and we have been able to say how they differ. Our topic learning has focussed on religious communities this week and we have learnt that different religions are based on different beliefs. We have learnt about Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Judaism. We have learnt lots of new vocabulary and had the chance to handle artefacts from these religions which has been really interesting. We have also demonstrated our knowledge of communities around the world and been able to explain similarities and differences between countries because of our family connections, visiting on holidays, or simply from learning about them from sources such as books and the internet. Our understanding of different cultures has been impressive and we have demonstrated understanding of the different ways people live around the world.
