KS1 RE Quiz - Biblical Characters (Questions)

This Biblical Characters RE quiz asks children to identify the key figures within Christianity. The focus on this sole religion is because Key Stage 1 children’s assemblies tend to concentrate on stories from the Bible, compared to RE lessons where they may spend a term on a specific religion.
