Faiths and Festivals Book 2
A follow-up to the best-selling Faiths and Festivals, this is a really useful and practical guide to the major faiths and festivals that we are likely to meet in early years settings. Based on a series of articles from Practical Pre-school and much of it written by Christine Howard (Articles of Faith founder), the book includes insights on the major faiths and other religious stances. Each festival chapter opens with a brief discussion on one aspect of teaching about religious issues in a classroom setting; the background to the festival is explained and there is a festival story to read aloud to the children, followed by suggested activities and recipes. Although written for early years this book has been used as background information up to sixth form level! This follow up includes role play suggestions, traditional festival foods, party ideas, craft activities and much more!
