About this unit:
This unit explores ways in which different people mark special occasions in the life of their families and communities, particularly:
• Bonfire Night
• Guru Nanak’s birthday
• the Nativity.
The unit looks at what these events mean to people of faith, and to people in the class. It allows people to share ideas and examine how traditions are formed.
