Each book features festivals of all the major religions (Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and Chinese) as they occur in chronological order throughout the school year, providing background information and pupil materials to reflect the traditions and celebrations.The photocopiable activities are suitable for assemblies (on an OHP) or as a classroom resource. They require minimal preparation and would be ideal for use by classroom assistants, supply teachers and after school clubs. They would also make a useful addition to the school's RE programme.
