Would love some suggestions from anyone in a similar situation.
My son is starting Primary school in September and we have taken the decision to remove him from religion class as we are atheists.
The school are very amenable to this, but as he is the first student in this very small rural school to ever opt out of religion class, they are at a loss as what to do with him during the class.
I understand that because it was my choice to exclude him I should prepare something for him to do while religion is being taught to the others but I don't know what to do, should I buy some books that he can rotate on different days so he doesn't get bored?... Any parents in a similar position I would love to hear what you did.... I have considered 'where's wally' and there is a good Usbourne book called 'a thousand searches' which is educational, but could be a bit advanced for him....
