3 What does it mean to be a follower? to reflect on present day celebrities - idols. to reflect on sources of inspiration. Ask the children to describe why they or others follow a pop band or football team, etc. Responses can be discussed in groups and common themes highlighted. What feelings do we get from following/experiencing? Children could be invited to share their own responses and bring in to school any posters, music or other related material. Children will need to be encouraged to express their feelings and experiences connected to following. Children could interview each other in TV chat show style or be invited to create their own montage. Children consider the question, What makes a loyal follower? What does following a religion mean? to recognize that certain actions and practices follow a commitment to a religion. Introduce the theme of Religion and the Individual and particularly - what is expected of a person who follows a religion or belief? Thought shower what the children remember from the previous unit - Inspirational People - about Jesus and Muhammad. Briefly re-cap from previous unit. What was it about them that people respected and admired? Why did people follow them and continue to do so today?

4 What did Jesus teach and tell people to do? to consider how teachers and writers use stories to teach particular ideas. to use and interpret information from the Bible. Look at Jesus teaching Sermon on the Mount Matthew Chapter 5-7. Choose examples of Jesus teaching to the people, e.g. a) How to pray - Lord s Prayer, Matthew 6: 7-13; b) Trust, Matthew 6: 25-34; c) The Golden rule, Matthew 7: 12; d) The True follower, Matthew 7: Children can explore The Golden Rule - How easy or difficult is it to practise? If everyone followed this one rule what difference would it make? Other stories and Parables can be expressed through role play and could be performed at collective worship or an assembly. Invite a speaker from the Christian community to talk about the importance of their faith. Summarize from these extracts. Being a Christian means that you should Children can respond through a variety of ways to The Golden Rule, using music, drama, art etc. to promote the importance of the rule. These extracts from the Sermon on the Mount will need practical examples in order to draw out the meaning. It is important to convey that religion, in this case Christianity and Islam, is a way of living life. How did Muhammad teach? to recognize the key events from Muhammad s life. Children can response to the question, how did Muhammad become a great teacher? Research through available resources and Internet.

5 What are the 5 Pillars of Islam? to recognize the key teachings of Islam. to understand what a Muslim is supposed to do. Introduce the 5 Pillars as the support of Islam. The 5 Pillars are what Allah directed Muhammad to teach. Focus on the 1 st Pillar, Shahadah. Children can write it out and discuss the meaning of the Statement of Faith. These can be illustrated according to Islamic art patterns and displayed in the classroom. Children can make a model or draw a picture to illustrate the 5 Pillars. They can be invited to explain their meaning, as if on radio to an audience who know nothing about Islam. Islam means peace through submission. Muslim means one who has submitted to Allah (God). See previous Unit regarding drawing pictures of Muhammad. Look at calligraphy and Islamic/Arabesque patterns for illustration. What is Prayer? to explore the concept and meaning of prayer. to understand how prayer is part of human expression. Children can look up the meaning of the word prayer in the dictionary. Explore and discuss the meaning. When do we pray? Does everyone pray? When are people most likely to pray? This could be explored during a quiet circle time or time of quiet reflection. Children can complete the phrase I think some people might pray How do Muslims pray? to understand how prayer is a commitment within the Muslim way of life. Explore all the rituals and requirements associated with Muslim prayer (Salat) including the call to Prayer (azan) and washing (wudu). A Muslim visitor could be invited to talk about prayer and demonstrate the rituals. Children can record the sequence and meaning of the prayer. Write a short reflection beginning with when I am still and quiet

6 What is expected of a person following Christianity and Islam? to recognize the similarities and differences between Christian and Muslim teachings. to understand that following a religion involves commitment to a way of life, supported by practices such as prayer. Revisit class or school rules, taking the theme of respect for others. Assuming children are all committed to respect. What behaviour is expected from each child? Children suggest what Christians and Muslims would say is important in life. The class can be divided into groups. On the basis of the unit so far children decide, What do Christians and Muslims believe, how do they pray, and what is expected from them? Discuss similarities and differences.
