The primary school pupils have been learning about prayer in Christianity as part of their RS curriculum but their visit to Carr Hill gave them the opportunity to learn about prayer across other faiths such as Hinduism, Judaism and Islam.

The Year 6s were invited to take part in the day as part of Carr Hill’s ongoing commitment to working with local primary schools in order to help students with the transition from primary to secondary school. The RS Ambassadors taught students about prayer within different religions before setting them a series of activities including a card challenge where pupils worked in teams to collect a suit of cards by correctly answering questions on prayer in different religions. The activities helped to test the Year 6 students on what they had learned in a fun and interactive way.

RS teacher Mr Churm said: “We would like to thank the students from Ribby with Wrea Primary School for visiting us. We hope that they learned lots of new things from our RS Ambassadors. The challenges were a huge success and the students showed how much they had learned over the course of the day. We hope to see them again soon.”

Assistant Headteacher Mr Johnstone said: “The RS Prayer Day is one of many opportunities pupils from local primary schools are given to visit Carr Hill. We are proud of the links we have with our local primary schools and we know that frequent visits such as these help students to feel more confident about the beginning of their secondary school journey.”
