Part One of Two Lessons

LO: How do Hindus pray and worship at home and in the Mandir?

 

Objects that express what matters most: do we all worship?

 

I would like you to choose several meaningful objects that express what matters to you. Look at the objects and suggest reasons to an adult why they might be important. Adult you may like to think of sharing some to and be prepared to talk to the children about them e.g. family photo, heirloom, letter from someone special, music, poem, religious symbol, trophy. It’s not their cash value that tells you the value of these things.

 

Talk about how objects can show what matters most to us. Focus on the importance and significance of special objects. Now I would like you to draw a picture of your special object in the centre of a piece of paper. Around this write words to show what the object means to you and why it is special.

 

Friday 26th June - ART

 

Can you make a picture of Cruella De Vil. You could draw, paint, collage or use anything you have at home! 

 

Send us a picture in to see!

LO: How and why do Christians like to pray?

 

What are the different ways Christians pray and why these might be helpful – lighting candles (votive candles), kneeling, open hands, incense (as a symbol of prayers rising to God), through music, through silence and meditation. If you can try to experience some quiet music leading to silence with a lit candle in which you can sit quietly and enjoy time to just be. Write down your thoughts and reactions and reflect on what use is stillness to me?

 

Christian artefacts as aids to prayer:  Ask an adult to help you find a picture of a cross, or you may have one in your house, and to write the prayer they think a Christian might say to go with it.

Next choose a picture of people suffering, and the prayer that goes with it.

Then a life cycle ritual such as Christening, marriage or a funeral and the prayer that goes with it.

Friday 19th June

 

Following on from our science topic – Plants.  Go into your garden or local outdoor space and draw or paint your favourite flower that you find. 

 

Send them in for us to see!

Who are Christians praying to? Why?

How do the you think a Christian prays?

Is that any different to how people from other religions pray?

 

 

The Lord’s Prayer –  can you find out when was it first used? (Jesus taught his disciples how to pray Matthew 6 v 5-13) where and when is it used?

What are the key beliefs are expressed in the prayer (e.g. the fatherhood of God, God as provider of food, belief in heaven, forgiveness for sin).

LO: What happens in Islamic Prayer

 

Part Two of Two Lessons

 

Today I would like you to do some research on Subha Beads (Muslim Prayer Beads)

These are used to keep count of prayers like 'Glory to God' 'God is the Greatest' each which are said 33 times or to keep count of the 99 beautiful names of Allah.

 

I would like you to create a poster about Subha Beads. Remember to include pictures, facts and key words. Make sure it is eye-catching to and clear to see.

 

Challenge: To find some different names for Allah that would be in the Qur'an

Today we would like you to have a go at an acrostic poem on Rosa Parks which you will have read earlier in Literacy.  Use the information you read earlier to help you. 

 

When you've written your poem, read it to an adult and see if they can work out who your poem is about. 

Thursday 4th June

 

This week we have been learning about Martin Luther King.  'I have a dream' are his famous words, today we would like you to think about what your dream would be for our world. 

 

You can be as creative as you want, you could display your dream as a collage, a poster, a speech which you could record.  

 

We would love to see what you come up with and how you choose to portray your ideas! 

Wednesday 3rd June

First think about all the superheroes you know. You may have magazines, posters, books with images in or you could just use google. Use the images of superheroes to mindmap different superheroes thinking about:

- What do they look like?

- What are their characteristics?

- Do they have anything in common?

 

Discuss with an adult if possible the characteristics of a ‘healthy living’ superhero. What would s/he do, say, wear? Mindmap some ideas on the board about what s/he might look like. Now think of a catchphrase for the superhero. Think of other aspects of healthy eating, not just diet. For example; drinking water, brushing teeth, exercising… Using the blank template if you wish have a go at designing  your  own ‘healthy living’ superhero.

 

• Optional: using the speech bubbles, write some phrases the superhero might say: “1,2,3,4,5-a day!” “Drink water to keep healthy”. Alternatively, you could  use the writing template to describe the superhero. Remember to write about his appearance as well as his characteristics and catchphrases

We have been doing some work on superheroes. Today I have uploaded a sheet for you to play a game with a family member.

 

Here are the rules. The rules are simple.

  • First you need to create your superhero team do this by laying the cards face down on the table.
  • Next one by one pick two cards and compare the superheroes on them. Then just pick one to keep.
  • Do this until no cards are left.
  • Now you have to pick the best hero in each category - strength, weight, size, height, age and speed (only use a category once) and lay them on arena (table) face down.
  • Once all the categories are set reveal the cards and compare heroes in each category. The winner is the one who's won the higher number of category battles.

 

Afterwards you may like to replay again! Or even create a set of cards yourself. Please send them in if you do.

LO: To understand what healthy living is.

 

Being healthy is super important. It has lots of benefits to use including a healthy mind, better sleep pattern and positivity. Exercising makes our bodies stronger, it makes our heart pump faster and keeps it active. What foods do you think are healthy? Write them down.

LO: To understand what a prayer is and how it is helpful.

 

Part One of Two Lessons

 

First of all think about who helps you and make a list of these people. Then think about the following sentences:

  • This person magically solves all my problems.
  • This person gives me a hug and helps me feel better
  • This person makes sure nothing bad ever happens
  • This person really cares about me.
  • We like spending time together
  • We enjoy each others company
  • We cheer each other up
  • We try to help out.
  • We listen to each other.

 

Do the above link to talking to one another in some kind of way. Often prayers are described as a conversation or a relationship with the Almighty.

We often talk to the people who mean the most to us because they love and care for us which helps us feel good, they don't grant magic wishes.

 

Task: Create a poster of ' Who loves us'  Create small drawings of people who love you and write a sentence explaining why

Thursday 7th May 2020

 

Tomorrow is VE Day and a bank holiday to celebrate.

Wednesday 6th May

Monday 4th May - RE

 

Today's session is planning three memory boxes.

 

First you will need to think about a memory box for something important in your life - What do you want to celebrate and remember? Is it a person? An importance place or event?

 

Secondly a memory box for school - What do they want to remember or celebrate about Year Three? People? One-off or regular events?

 

Finally a memory box for a Christian remembering the life of Jesus - What will go into it? Remember all of the things Christians already do/use to remember Jesus.

 

Draw and write what will go in each box. If you have physical objects and boxes you may even like to create them physically. Think and write in your book what each item represents. How often you will use the memory box and what you will do with the things.

 

I'd love to hear and see your memory boxes remember to email them to the school office or even tweet about them.

 

Friday 1St May 2020

 

During this unprecedented time, we want you to think about our heroes in our country today.   They could be Doctors, Nurses, care workers, teachers, fire fighters or shop workers... anyone you consider a hero, particularly in the world right now!

 

 For today's challenge, you need to choose a real life hero and research their job role.  Can you find out what they have to do as part of their job? How much they get paid? What qualifications they need? Who they help? And why they are a hero? When you have completed your research, we would like you to make a poster of everything you have found out.  Perhaps part of it could say Thank You as well.

 

Please send your completed posters into school, we would love to see!
