Religious Studies KS3: Y is for Yom Kippur

Every religion has its own special party.

This animated, fast-paced short film introduces students to traditional religious celebrations, such as Yom Kippur, Easter, Eid-Ul-Fitr and Diwali.

Pupils will learn that religious celebrations are an occasion for believers to reaffirm their commitment to their faith and each other, and that their essence is often very similar across different cultures.

This is from the series: A-Z of Religion and Beliefs

Teacher Notes

You could ask your pupils to identify the many similarities that can be found across celebrations from different religions.

This short film could also be used to discuss the relationship between religion and family.
