World Religion Day assembly

Here is the script and corresponding Powerpoint for our Word Religion Day assembly. It was a Year 3 class that did this but it could also be used for a Year 4 class. We only had 19 children so you'd need to split some of the speaking parts if you wanted all children to speak. We sang 'The World in Union' afterwards.

6 main religions

A research lesson where different groups research one of the 6 main religions and then feedback to the rest of the class. Also I have included a powerpoint I used at the end of the lesson to recap main points and an info worksheet so all children would have info on all 6 religions not just the one they researched. Used in a special school with children with MLD but could be adapted to make more difficult for other Key stages
