Synopsis

At Home and the Synagogue by Lynne Broadbent, John Logan

The Places for Worship series presents children and their families from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. At Home and the Synogogue introduces two children who are both Jewish: Rachel, whose family goes to an Orthodox synagogue, and David, whose family goes to a Reform synagogue. Through the eyes of the children, the book explores the key features of their worship at their respective synagogues. The similarities and differences will be highlighted and discussed by the children and identified for teachers in the Teacher's notes in the Big Book. Topics on homes, families and special places are common in early years' classrooms and address the themes of the non-statutory framework of RE for Foundation and Key Stage 1. Read as a class text, by groups of children or by independent readers, this series provides a lively introduction to each faith and a sound basis for classroom discussion and activities. The language level is appropriate for pupils aged 5-6 (Key Stage 1). The A5-size pupil's books are accessible for independent readers aged 6-8 (KS1 and lower KS2). This series is available in both English and Welsh language editions.
