Today, we will be making our own R.E booklet.
We will start off by designing the front of our booklet. Can you include as many religious symbols as you can remember?
On the first page of our booklet, we will use a word search to note down key words that would help us throughout the day.
You can click the link to play the word search:
Find the words below.
Can you write a short definition for 3 of the words you have found? Which religions do your words relate to?
On the next page of the booklet, we will test our knowledge of different Gods/beliefs.
Who/what do the following religions believe in?
True or false?
Create a table on the next page. Label one side true and the other side false. Put the statements into the correct column.
Christians believe there is more than one God.
Over 70% of the Indian population identifies as Hindu.
Yom Kippur takes place two months before Rosh Hashanah.
The founder of the Sikh religion is Guru Nanak.
A Gurdwara is the name given to a place of worship in Hinduism.
Islam is the world’s second-largest religion.
Hanukkah lasts for ten days and nights.
We will look at local and international places of worship.
Can you draw and/or label the places of worship shown below. Write a sentence about each.
How did you know what it was?
Celebrations and festivals
What festivals have you heard of before?
Who celebrates them?
Why are they celebrated?
When are they celebrated?
Are there any similarities between festivals/events that are celebrated in different religions? (e.g. fasting)
Create a poster page of your booklet, providing information about a celebration or festival.
We will move on to a storyboard activity:
Split your page into 6 sections to create a storyboard.
Retell one of the following stories:
Adam and Eve
Rama and Sita
Siddhartha and the 4 sights
The prophet Muhammad
Moses and the burning bush
