’KS2/3 RE’ looks at Year 6 pupils at Easington Colliery Primary School, near Durham, who did a six week project on symbols and symbolism in religious and everyday life.

Every week, they observed symbols and symbolism in different religions and then found equivalents in their own lives. These symbols were entered into their own 'memorial' books, which covered not only religious symbols and their home and family life but also their time at the primary school that they were leaving behind.
