What we say about R.E at Coxhoe Primary School...
Inter-Faith Month October 2019
In October, we had our first Interfaith Month in school. Over the course of the month we had visitors from the Sikh, Muslim and Jewish religions, who led whole school assemblies and worked within classes. It was a great opportunity to be able to compare different religions. At the end of the month, we had a special Celebration Assembly. Each class brought along something to share and it was fantastic to see what the children had been doing. It was a lovely opportunity for them to share with each other some of what they had learnt.
