CHINA

CHINA

Locate China on a world map and learn about Chinese facts and traditions. Have a go at Chinese multiplication and learn about a recent Earhquake in China. 2 assemblies also included (a teacher led whole-school assembly AND a class assembly). Why not learn some Tai Chi too ... I’ve attached a simple Tai Chi routine (accompanied by some relaxing music).

Hanukkah Story Order

Hanukkah Story Order

After looking at the story of Hanukkah I used this to get the students to re-tell the story. They cut up the different parts and worked in pairs to put them in the correct order. We then drew a picture to go with each part to aid re-telling.

Brahman And Other Hindu Gods

Brahman And Other Hindu Gods

Brahman is believed to be the underpinning spirit of the world and to be found in everything. He has many different characteristics represented in different forms which are called avatars, or murtis. There are thousands of gods and goddesses whom which Hindus can worship, all with their own special individual characteristics, which allow followers to choose their own deities. Many believe all these gods and goddesses are different aspects of the unchanging ultimate supreme Brahman. In groups the students are given an opportunity to create a poster which will come together with the rest of the class to show as many of the Hindu god and goddesses as possible – possibly about 30 depending in the size of your class (!)

Hinduism - A Mysterious Beast, Brahman And Other Hindu Gods

Hinduism - A Mysterious Beast, Brahman And Other Hindu Gods

The best way to illustrate the diversity of Hinduism is through the story of ‘A Mysterious Beast.’ A ‘Mysterious Beast’ (essentially an elephant!) came to the Land of the Blind; the king set his courtiers to find out what it was. Each man described a different part of the elephant, all the men in the story are correct and telling the truth but only in part, as with the elephant, Hinduism is made up of many parts, though beneath all this verity there is one unchanging reality: Brahman. Brahman is believed to be the underpinning spirit of the world and to be found in everything. He has many different characteristics represented in different forms which are called avatars, or murtis. There are thousands of gods and goddesses whom which Hindus can worship, all with their own special individual characteristics, which allow followers to choose their own deities. Many believe all these gods and goddesses are different aspects of the unchanging ultimate supreme Brahman. These worksheets include a game which explains how each part of the elephant is described by the blind men and asks the students to explain how this is linked to the Hindu religion.

Job Spec for God, Year 3 RE

Job Spec for God, Year 3 RE

Hi all, A part of our Year 3 curriculum, we discuss what our perceptions of God are. This is a simple yet enjoyable sheet for the children to share their ideas of what they think God is like, or what they might want God to be like if they don't have a faith/belief. Kind of a 'Job description' for God. As a class, we'll have looked at Sikhism and their perception of God as a starting point to the lesson. Once we've brainstormed/shared ideas, the children can fill in the sheet. The sheet is completely editable, so feel free to change bits to suit your lesson/needs. Cheers, Emlo
