Today you will need page 1 and page 5 from this booklet.
Assembly - Rama and Sita - Hinduism
Watch this video and consider these questions:
|Play the video. The duration is 4' 53". It ends with the words '...Ravi hurried into school, excited to tell his friends the story of Rama and Sita'.|
|Use the story questions to consolidate the children's recall of the events: 1. What religion do Ravi and his family follow? 2. What story does Aunty Sheema tell? 3. What is the name of the demon king? 4. How does Ravana trick Sita? 5. How does Rama defeat Ravana? 6. Why do the people place oil lamps in their windows?|
|Gather ideas about the different lights that were present in the video [in windows, sparkler, fireworks, the magic circle, oil lamps, stars, sun and moon, the magic arrow - you could also include Rama and Sita glowing!] Talk about why light and dark are an important part of the celebration of Diwali - and think about how our lives can often feel 'light' or 'dark'. What do the children think we can learn from the story. There may be opportunities to link the story to RE back in class.|
|An opportunity to sing your chosen song. Suggestions from BBC collections below.|
|'We've been thinking today about the Hindu story of Diwali... How it's a celebration of Rama and Sita... Of good triumphing over evil... And light over darkness... The good deeds that people do in our world shine out like lights in the darkness... What good deed might you do today that will shine out of the darkness..?'|
|'As you look again at the candles, think about what good deed that might be. Use the stillness to ask God to help you if you'd like to...'|
Year 6 Transition Survey
Last week your parents received an email about you completing an online survey - please check you have managed to complete that.
Transition to Year 7
This book is awesome! It is called "You are Awesome" and we are going to be reading it and using it to think of our transition to Year 7.
Look through this PowerPoint and think about the activities set.
Here are two tasks for you to complete after going through the PowerPoint above.
To recap the history of crime and punishment and
compare it to today.
Look at the timeline on the slides showing each of the periods we have studied. What can you remember about crimes, prevention and punishment in each of these periods?
• Go through the information on the slides about crime, prevention and punishment today.
How is crime and punishment different today to how it was in the past? Where do some of the aspects of modern crime and punishment come from (e.g. judges and juries date all the way back to the Roman period, prisons as punishment is a Victorian idea)?
Choose worksheet 7A, 7B or 7C to complete.
Complete worksheet 7A by filling in the sections showing crime and punishment for each of the periods studied. Use pictures, words or sentences to convey their ideas.
Draw a picture in each box on worksheet 7B, then annotate with as much information as you can remember to create a poster about the history of crime and punishment.
Create your own poster or information booklet about crime and punishment throughout history. Make links between
