RE Task 1

 

Bore da Blwyddyn 2!

 

In RE we have been learning all about Easter traditions around the world. But how do you celebrate Easter? Let’s find out how your friends and family celebrate Easter – it’s the perfect opportunity to give someone a call whilst we’re stuck inside!

You could write down the interview, record the interview or display their answers in a creative way! I can’t wait to see them!

RE Task 2

 

Bore da Blwyddyn 2!

 

Can you remember any of the Easter traditions from around the world we have been learning about?  What do people fly in Bermuda on Good Friday?

That’s right! In Bermuda at Easter, one of the traditions on Good Friday is to fly kites. It is believed that many years ago, a teacher from the British Army was living in Bermuda and was struggling to explain to the children in his Sunday school class about Jesus’ ascension (going up) to Heaven. To try and help the children in his Sunday school class understand, he made a kite shaped like a cross to illustrate the idea of Jesus ascending (going up) into Heaven.

 

Why don’t you have a go at designing and making your own Easter kite? What symbols could you include on it? Think about the Easter story – the cross, the empty tomb etc. What colours will you have on your kite? Do they represent something?

You can email me pictures of your kites or send a picture to the school Twitter @BirchgrovePrm

I look forward to seeing your designs!

RE Task 4

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2! 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter. What Easter traditions did you take part in? 

 

This term we're going to take a look at some of the rules and routines that different religions follow. To get us started I'd like you to think of the rules and routines that you have at home. A rule is something that you must follow - an example of a rule is 'always tidy up where you have been playing or working'. Whereas a routine, is something that you normally do at the same time each day, for example, I always brush my teeth after breakfast and before I go to bed. 

 

Complete the grid below to help you think about your rules and routines. 

 

Miss Davies (RE)

 

Any problems, you can email me rsdavies@birchgroveprm.cardiff.sch.uk

RE Task 5

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2! 

Are you enjoying the sunshine again? I think if I was in charge I would make a rule that it only rains at night so we can enjoy sunshine during the daytime. 

 

If you were in charge of the world what 10 rules would you come up with to make the world a better place?

Send me an email with your rules, you can be as creative as you like.

RE Task 6

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2! 

I've really enjoyed seeing what rules you would have to make the world a better place if you were in charge, so please keep sending me your work. 

 

In the Bible, Moses receives a special message from God. Watch the video below to see what he is given. When you have watched the video, read through the 10 Commandments PowerPoint and decide which commandment you think Christians would say is most important and which one you believe is most important. Don't forget, you're nearly year 3 now, so it's really important we explain our reasons why. Write the sentences in your home learning book or somewhere safe as you will need them for the next task. 

Miss Davies (RE)

 

Please email me copies of your work at rsdavies@birchgroveprm.cardiff.sch.uk.

RE Task 7

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

Which commandment did you think was most important? Did your family agree with you? 

This task looks at Hindu rules. I would like you to work through the PowerPoint slides and complete the two questions in your home learning book. In the next task we will use your answers from tasks 6 and 7 to compare Hindu and Christian rules.

RE Task 8 

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

 

This week I'd like you to compare the Christian rules that we've been looking at with the Hindu rules. You will have noticed that some of the rules are very similar and some are quite different. I would like you to use the Venn diagram template to help you compare which rules are similar and which rules are different. I have done some as an example in the picture below. 

 

 

I'd love to see your work when you have completed it, so email it to me  at rsdavies@birchgroveprm.cardiff.sch.uk

 

Miss Davies. 

 

P.S. Don't forget to check how you can get involved with the latest issue of the Birchgrove Buzz here.

RE Task 9 

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

I'm missing seeing all of your lovely smiles and hope to see you all in a few weeks. In this week's task I'd like us to look at Islam. In Islam, Muslims are expected to follow the Five Pillars, these are duties that guide Muslims on how to live a good and honest life.

 

Watch the BBC Teach video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9U8T8x1AhQ to learn about the Five Pillars of Islam. Then read the information on the PowerPoint with an adult and see if you can complete the match up activity.

RE Task 10

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

Buddhism is a religion that we haven't really studied yet - but we will explore more next year when you are in Year 3. Buddhists try to live their lives according to 8 main rules - these rules are known as the Eightfold Path. One rule that Buddhists follow is 'Right Action'  which means behaving in a thoughtful way and considering others and the world we live in. This also means not hurting others or animals. 

For Task 10 I would like you to take a look at the picture below and answer the following questions:

 

 

What can you see in the picture? 
What do you think might have happened?
What would you like to know about the picture? 

 

 

Next week we will explore what happens in the story.

RE Task 11

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2! 

The picture in task 10 came from a Buddhist story called the Buddha and the Injured Swan. I love stories, don't you? This week I would like you to read the story of the Buddha and the Injured Swan and answer the following questions;

 

- Who made a good choice in the story? Explain your answer. 

- Who made a bad choice in the story? Explain your answer. 
- If you found an injured animal, what would you do and why? 

 

I hope you enjoy the story!

RE Task 12

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

This week I would like to focus on the characters in the story and how we would describe them. Think about the four characters the Buddha, the swan, the teacher and the Buddha's cousin. How would you describe each character? 

 

 

                

 

                                            


For this task I would like you to think of 5-8 words to describe each character. For example I would say the Buddha is kind and thoughtful, but his cousin is selfish. Use the 'Help - Feeling Synonyms' sheet to help you think of alternative words if you get stuck. 

 

Miss Davies

RE Task 13 

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2!

This week I would like us to practice telling the story of the Buddha and the Injured Swan before we write it next week. Use the picture cards to help you order the story and then retell it in your own words. Remember to use some of the words you came up with in the last task to describe the characters in the story - this will make your story more detailed and more exciting. 

 

E.g. Instead of saying 'Then the Buddha picked up the swan' you could say 'Immediately, the shocked Buddha ran to check on the helpless swan'. 

After practicing and when you are happy that you know the story well, find a family member and teach the story to them.

RE Task 14 

 

Hello Blwyddyn 2! 

Are you looking forward to the summer holidays? I am! It has been so lovely to see some of you in school over the last few weeks, and I'm sure you're happy to be back with your friends!

 

For the final RE task, I would like you to write the story of the Buddha and the Injured Swan. I have included a template storyboard if you wish to use it, or you can just write it in your home learning book. Remember to include lots of detail in the story and try and use some exciting time phrases to help create excitement in your story. Don't forget to use the adjectives you came up with to describe the characters in the story. 

 

Enjoy the summer holidays, 

Miss Davies
