Judaism

St Peter’s Christian vision inspires the whole school community to engage in the understanding, respect and tolerance for other World Faiths in the local, national and global community.

To have a secure understanding of Judaism and the beliefs of the Jewish Faith, we thought it was important for all the children to look at different aspects of Judaism in-depth and share their learning.

Early Years, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 had a visit from Jeremy who came in to teach the children about their chosen topics; Year 4 went to Bury Synagogue and Year 5 and Year 6 went to Manchester Jewish Museum.

Please have a read below about what we learned, our reflections on this faith and see how similar our shared beliefs are.
