Packed with ideas for the primary school teacher, this book includes stories, songs and drama activities from six major world religions: Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. The book is helpfully split into topic areas which include:

New BeginningsPlaces of WorshipFriendsFestivalsRites of PassageWater ThemesAnimals and BirdsInspirational Leaders.

There is also a useful section on background information with pronunciation guides for teachers for the different world religions featured.

Multi-faith Activity Assemblies combines Elizabeth Peirce's previous books, Activity Assemblies for Christian Collective Worship 5-11 and Activity Assemblies for Multi-racial Schools 5-11. Taking the best ideas from both and adding new material, it will be invaluable to headteachers, deputy headteachers, primary school teachers or any trainee teacher who is looking for a collection of assembly ideas that promotes tolerance and understanding of the multi-faith society in which we live.

'She knows exactly what teachers need ... The book is very well thought out and offers a wide range of material, including stories, poems, playlets and non-fiction extracts. The assemblies really do cater for all ages and provide maximum involvement. The background information for teachers is particularly helpful and the section on place of worship provides enough material to teach a whole topic.' - Times Educational Supplement

'The language used is teacher friendly and the ideas are realistic and accessible. This would be a very useful resource in the staff room of any primary school.' - Hampshire RE Centre

'This is a book that should be on the shelves of all RE co-ordinators and in all staffrooms, regardless of the situation of the school. Elizabeth Peirce's book will support many teachers and students as they prepare their lessons and their assemblies.' - Alan Brown, Institute of Education, University College Worcester (escalate website)

'If any school wishes to make a proper educational use of assemblies instead of using them to fill time while teachers are released for other tasks, this is the book to obtain ... Altogether this is a treasure of a book.' - Education Review
