KEY STAGE 2
Mid-term planning
Enquire & Explore: (AT1)
 What places do the children think are special to Christians? Can they name any? Pin pictures and information
about various places of pilgrimage round the room and allow the children time to “visit” them, choosing the
place that they are most interested in, which they can then research. Watch video clip of Sister Margaret
talking about her pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella which is on the old www.request.org.uk website.
Pupils could write a postcard back from their chosen place, making it clear what is different between a
pilgrimage and a holiday.
 Research further Christian places of pilgrimage – Lourdes, Canterbury, Iona, etc.
 Put a picture of Hindus at the Ganges in the middle of a large sheet, and pupils work in groups to say what
they think is happening, adding questions that they have. These can then be shared with another group,
which suggests answers to the questions or adds ideas of their own.
 Research Hindu places of pilgrimage – Varanasi, etc. Find out about the history of these places, what people
do when they go there, how they travel, why they travel there.
Evaluate: (AT2 Impersonal)
 Pupils consider and debate whether pilgrimage is more meaningful for Christians or Hindus, offering reasons
and suggestions. It may include answers to any of the following questions: Do worshippers have to leave
home to worship? Do you think they gain more by going somewhere a long distance away to worship? Does
the journey add to the experience? Is it more meaningful if they travel with others? Are some places more
important than others?
Reflect & Communicate: (AT2 Personal)
 Would the children want to go on a pilgrimage? Would that be more important than a holiday? Where would
they go? Why? What would they take? Who would they travel with? Make an advert for either a pilgrimage
or staying at home to get close to God
Evaluation:
 What went well?
 Even better if:
Some suggested resources:
 Pilgrimage presentations on RE
 Quest – www.request.org.uk
 Cards about the various places of pilgrimage with pictures and information
 www.reonline.org.uk – pilgrimage links
 www.retoday.org.uk
 “Diamond nine” activity about reasons to go on pilgrimage
 RE Today publications: Developing Primary RE – Special places;
RE Ideas – Sacred places
