RE in year 6 this term
Wednesday 13th December |
This term in RE Year 6 have been working on a unit called ‘What does it mean to be a Sikh?’
The children learned about the Mool Mantar and its importance, Guru Nanak and the other Gurus, The Guru Granth Sahib and the main symbols of Sikhism. The main idea was, not just to know about things, but to gain an understanding of Sikh beliefs and ways of life. This is at the heart of this rather than just remembering facts. E.g. knowing Sikh symbols is good but understanding their symbolism and how they make the person feel is most important. We could then relate this idea to different faiths and, indeed, to any feelings of belonging for you personally. Our visit to the Gurdwara was a fantastic experience which enabled the children to gain some of this deeper understanding.
We used writing, role play, pictures and art work to express our thoughts and ideas.
