Religious Education T6

Explain what a pilgrimage is; name places of pilgrimage and describe, with support, the significance of these pilgrimages.


Are there any places in the world that you would love to visit? Take a moment to think about why.

Perhaps you chose somewhere that is associated with someone special – for example, the town or country your grandparents were born, or where a hero of yours lives. Perhaps you chose a place you have heard a lot about and would love to see for yourself.

Why do you think Christians would decide to go on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land – the land where Jesus was born and lived?

 What do you think they would hope to see and do when they were there?

So what did you learn about the Christians visit to their Holy Land?

  • What did they do?
  • What did they see?
  • How did it make them feel?
  • Would you like to go too?


Many people go on pilgrimages from many different religions.

  • Buddhist
  • Hindu
  • Muslim
  • Jewish

I would like you to research and learn more about a pilgrimage; gather information and pictures.

You can choose the religion.

Record the information you find in a non-chronological report or in your purple book.
