British Value – Tolerance of Those of Different Faiths and Beliefs

Year 5


All children have been learning about British Values.  At our school we promote British Values in order to prepare our children for life in modern Britain.

Working in collaboration with artist-in-residence Andrew Tims, children from Year 5 produced photomontages based on the British Value – Tolerance of Those of Different Faiths and Beliefs.  Using a range of imagery, including places of worship and photographs of the young artists, the children created ‘scenes’ that they felt encapsulated the term.

Throughout the creative process the children were able to discuss the meaning of this British Value and below are two examples.

“It is important to respect others that have different religions at our school”

 “There are lots of different people in our world and we should respect them all the same”

 The three artworks, produced in small groups, depict some of the many places of worship (Buddhist Temple, Church, Hindu Temple, Kingdom Hall, Mosque, Sikh Temple, Synagogue), used by the people of Britain.
