    When I am working with my Key Stage two class, I am conscious to say ‘some’ Christians believe or ‘some’ Jewish people think that…etc. I’d be interested to know how you avoid sweeping generalisations about religions/people of faith in your schools and how you make the children aware of diversity within religions. For example, do you talk about the similarities and differences between Catholicism, Church of England, Methodists, Baptists, Salvation Army who would all be identified as Christian?



    I have found with my KS 2 girls that they are slowly moving away from ‘labels’.As to similarities and differences .Wherever possible I draw their attention to them. I find the drip, drip, feed is beginning to assist in them vocalising religion in a more global village way when we discuss different ceremonies or festivals.
    Un certain if this helps you ,or helps your question.
