To start our new RE project based on Sikhism, Guru Nanak Gurpurab, we enjoyed a drama activity based on how important it is to treat people equally, which is extremely important within the Sikh religion.
This group memorable drama experience needed to include a performance that incorporated a person not being treated equally then display a resolution. We had great fun performing and reflecting.
This term, we will be learning all about the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi. This is when people who believe in the Hindu faith celebrate the birthday of the elephant god, Ganesh. During a reading comprehension activity, we used images from the Hindu story of Ganesh and used our prediction skills to think about what we thought would happen in the text and describe the different characters. We then read the story and reflected on our answers to see if we would change any of them. We then had great fun creating Ganesh masks and we became a class full of elephant gods!
