Week Commencing 15th June
Now we have finished our set of lessons on Pilgrimage, we are going to learn about Islam. Below is a link to the National Oak Academy's Foundation Lessons. You need to Scroll down to the humanities section section on Islam. There are 8 lessons. This week we will do lesson 1.
This term we will be learning about pilgrimage which is a journey to a special place. Lots of people from many faiths go on these visits to significant or special places.
As the first step in this learning, I would like you to identify a place that is special to you. It could be in your house or garden or somewhere else. I would like you to draw it and explain why it is special to you. For example you might have special objects there, or it might make you feel happy or safe, or it could be a place that you have happy memories of.
I look forward to seeing what you have done.
This week we will be learning about significant places that Christians visit. These sites are special for one of two reasons. Some because of their direct connection with Jesus, others are sites connected to saints or miracles.
Look at the power point to find out about these special sites. For the activity there are some matching cards. match the place to the reason it is significant to Christians.
There are eight great places that Buddhists like to visit.
Attached are the information sheets about each one. They show where they are and why they are significant to Buddhists.
Attached below is a Buddhist in formation map and a fact-file. Choose whether you would like to write about one place in detail or fill in the blanks on the information map about all of the places.
This week we will be looking at Hindu Pilgrimages, which includes Kumbh Mela which only happens once every 12 years.
You should be able to watch the video through the power point, but the link is below if that doesn't work.
Once you have watched the video you will be creating a question based board game so you will need to write down facts from the videos. Then you can create your questions. You can print the suggested game board, copy it or make up your own.
Summer Term 2
Week Commencing 1.6.2020
This week we will be learning about Muslim Pilgrimage. It is a very important and quite difficult journey which each Muslim is expected to take once in their lifetime if they are fit enough and they can afford to. After you have seen the video below and looked at the information on the power-point, make a story map or flow chart about this special journey. I would suggest using a double page spread in your book to give you plenty of space.
Week Commencing 8.6.2020
Continuing with our learning about Christianity I would like you to spend the last 2 lessons learning about Quakers.
Quakers or the 'Society of Friends' is a branch of Christianity outside the Church of England that was founded by George Fox in the 1650's. It was illegal to believe in anything other than the Church of England at that time and people were expected to go to church.
Quaker worship services are called "meetings for worship". They start with everybody sitting quietly. This is because they are trying to listen to God. Sometimes, a Quaker will feel that God wants him or her to say something. When this happens, the person stands up and tells everyone. Then they all sit quietly again. At some meetings, a many people will speak. At other meetings, nobody speaks. Quakers feel that a meeting for worship helps them to understand what God wants. Usually, worship lasts about an hour.
Follow the link below to a kiddle page about Quakers to find out more
Task for Week 1
In your learning book, write down the answers to the 2 questions.
Remember to write the date and the learning objective.
To learn about the Quakers
Hopefully you will have learned that John Cadbury (the founder of Cadbury's chocolate factories) was a Quaker.
When his sons (George and Richard) took over the business in 1861, it was doing so well that they needed to build another factory.
They moved onto a site outside the city as they believed it would be a better, cleaner and healthier environment for their workers. This place was well served by rail and waterway (canal) so it was easy to transport ingredients to the factory and products out. It was a place called Bournebrook Hall.
They planned and built a community, which they called Bournville, for their workers and their families, with everything they believed would make them healthy and happy, they paid fair wages too.
More information is available here:
Task for Week 2
This week I think it would be really cool to design your own village just like George and Richard Cadbury did in the 1860's.
If you followed the link to the Kiddle page you will have found out all the leisure facilities that were made available in and around the village of Bournville. Over 150 years later, our lives are very different from those of the workers of the Cadbury factory but we still like to have leisure time.
So design your own 'Scotterville' or 'yournameville' with all the facilities you would like it to have. You could draw a picture and label it, or do it like a map, where you are looking at it from the sky.
Either way, please label all of the houses, shops and leisure facilities you would have there.
Remember the date and learning objective:
To design my own village like George and Richard Cadbury's Bournville.
Have fun with this!
