At Childwall Abbey School, pupils follow the Programmes of Study from the National Curriculum and also the Local Authority Scheme of Work for Religious Education.
From Year 9 pupils embark on units of coursework which build, with other Humanities units, into accreditation with WJEC examination board – at Entry Level.
This year we have visited places of worship such as St Anne’s Church and Al-Rahma Mosque, we also visited Princes Road Synagogue and our two cathedrals.
Meanwhile, 8B visited both our beautiful cathedrals. We have some budding photographers, don’t you agree?
Year 7 put on a great Ramadam assembly where we tried some exotic food and drink. It was lovely to see staff and pupils of all beliefs working, eating and drinking together.
The synagogue was an awesome building.
Hinduism – Divali

We made Divas from clay …
and glazed them.
Here they are finished and lit up.
We even dressed up
We also made Barfi – with desiccated coconut and condensed milk.
At Christmas we made our own advent calendars.
We also made Christmas gifts for family and friends – such as decorated scented candles and wicker hearts.
