RE

The children in class 1 have created beautiful Diwali lamps to celebrate the festival of light during their RE lessons.

Class 1 have continued to learn about Diwali. This week they use clay to make their own Diva lamps.

In RE this week we have continued to learn all about Diwali. We have learnt more about the story of Rama and Sita and how good overcame evil in the story.

In R.E, Class 3 looked at the Hindu pilgrimage of Kumbh Mela and made jugs to hold an elixir.

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.

We used an extract from the beginning of the Hindu story Ganesha's Sweet Tooth to answer a variety of reading comprehension questions. We all enjoyed making predictions using the front cover and we are looking forward to continuing the story based on the Hindu god Ganesh next week. 
We loved making our own murti of Ganesh out of salt dough. During the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi, Ganesh statues are created from clay then at the end of the festival they are submerged into water in order to dissolve them. We'd like to keep our Ganesh murti though as we are very proud of them!

Class 2

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!
