We follow the Hampshire syllabus “Living Difference” which identifies that people follow different beliefs and helps children to develop a better understanding of why people live differently from each other. Our main focus when teaching comparative religions is looking at the similarities and differences between Christianity and Buddhism. When learning about Christianity we take part in Christian celebrations such as harvest, Christmas and Easter. We learn about Christianity through concepts such as welcoming, specialness and change. We learn about important Buddhist festivals Wesak and Nirvana Day – celebrating Buddha’s birthday and remembering loved ones. We learn about these different beliefs through concepts such as belonging, storytelling and symbols.
