If possible, have a few very precious books in a basket/box/container. Pick them out one at a time and explain why they are precious to you. Ask if the children have any books which are precious to them? (Might someone have been given a Bible as a Christening present or because they were a bridesmaid?) How should precious books be treated? Where should they be kept? Who looks after them? Explain that you are going to make a display of special books belonging to the class. Ask the children to bring a precious book in from home and explain that in readiness for this they are going to design and make a special place for them. But that you are also going to design and make a special place where sacred texts can be displayed. Discuss with the children what this might look like. Prepare/make the special places.

Introduce or use a copy from the children s display, of the Bhagavad- Gita explaining that it is one of the Hindu sacred texts. Show the children what the text looks like. Explain that it is written in Sanskrit but translated into English. Explain that is was written a very long time ago. Hindus believe it to be the word of God. It is complete and perfect. It is not the only Hindu scripture. Hindu eternal truths are recorded in the sacred texts called the Vedas.. The children could make an information book for a KS1 class explaining the different types of Hindu scriptures. This book could be made with great care to reinforce the understanding of a precious book. It could have an attractive cover which would stimulate the interest of the younger children and introduce Sanskrit calligraphy. This book will show whether or not the children have grasped the nature and breadth of the Hindu scriptures. A readable explanation of the Bhagavad-Gita can be found in the introduction to Bhagavad- Gita As It Is Pub. The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust available from: The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, PO Box 324, Borehamwood, Herts WD6 1 NB Veda means knowledge.. There are 4 Vedas. Each veda is divided into 3 parts: 1. the Samhitas or Mantras hymns 2. the Brahmanas: Rituals 3. the Upanishads or Vedanta: spiritual philosophy The Vedas are the principal authorities of Hinduism (Shruti). There are also a number of other authorities called Smrtis remembered text. These include the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The Bhagavad-Gita is the most popular Hindu scripture today. It is a part of the Mahabharata. It contains the essential teachings of the Vedas and Upanishads. It represents Hindu philosophy and view of life. A Google search of images - Hindu art provides many colourful images to stimulate the children.

7 What do the Hindu sacred texts say? to explore some Hindu sacred texts to reflect upon what these texts might mean Reinforce the learning from the previous lesson. In the appendix of this unit are a number of extracts from the Bhagavad-Gita. Divide the children into groups and give each group an extract. Ask them to discuss what it means and create a picture/painting/ pastel to explain its meaning. When the task is complete each group can share their understanding of the text with the rest of the class. Explanations of children s understanding of the text. Extracts from the Bhavagad Gita Include: Be peaceful to everyone, even people you don t like and those who are horrid to you. Read words that are peaceful and beautiful. The Holy Books have peaceful and beautiful words in them. Want things that are good and help people. Find light inside you and be like God. Make a display or a book (allow additional pages so that the book can be added to at a later date) could be made of their art work with their explanation and a copy of the text they were given. Sometimes you need to give things up to help people and to please God. If you would like to be like those on heaven, be kind and gentle, find good things in people and forgive them, tell the truth and have lots of energy.

8 What is an avatar? What does an avatar tell us about the nature of God? to explore Hindu beliefs from a story. to suggest answers to the question What does an avatar tell us about the nature of God? Tell the story How can a Demon be Killed.

How can a Demon be Killed can be found in A Tapestry of Tales by Palmer and Breuilly Pub Collins.Hindus believe that there is good and bad in everything but sometimes the bad becomes so powerful that the balance of goodness has to be restored. It is then that an avatar (an incarnation of the god Vishnu) comes into the world to restore the correct balance. Pupils may suggest answers to the key question What does an avatar tell us about the nature of God such as: God cares for people God watches over people God intervenes when evil is taking over the world What does the story of Rama and Sita tell us about the nature of God? to explore the meaning of the story of Rama and Sita to experience some of the preparations for the festival of Divali

Ask them to discuss whether the patterns remind them of anything? How do they feel when they look at the pattern? Which one do they like best? Make Divali lamps from clay and Ghee and a wick A group could produce a Power Point presentation about Divali Ghee is available in tins from Tesco and other stores

Draw their experiences together Ask the children if there is always someone who can sort out their problem or if some problems remain unsolved e.g. You have to play the recorder in front of the school, you have practised and your teacher has helped you but you are still terrified. How can you get the inner strength to play? Follow lesson plans from Festival Matters- Pentecost Y3 Tell the story of Dhruva and how he found the answer. What does this story tell Hindus?

There should be a copy of this publication in school. It also contains information about the god Vishnu.

12 CHRISTIANITY What is the Bible? What does the Bible mean to Christians? Where do you get your guidance from? to explore the Bible to understand that many Christians believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God Using Bibles that have been brought in by the children and are on the display table and Bibles you have in school, ask the children to identify the two main sections i.e. Old Testament and New Testament. Explain that the Old Testament tells about the relationship between God and the Jews and the New Testament tells us about Jesus and the Early Church. Explain that each section contains a number of different books, poetry, history, law and so on. Make a template of a book cover on which the children can illustrate the type of books found in the Bible. Teaching point the Bible, for many Christians, is a window to God. Explain to the class that they are going to look through some of the windows Ask the class to find or display the text of 2 Timothy 3 v In talk partners, discuss what this might mean for Christians Explain that the Bible gives guidance to Christians as to how to live their lives. Ask the children to discuss where they get their guidance from. Points raised by the children. The Bible is a book which describes the relationship between human beings and God. The Old Testament (OT) tells stories of God s dealing with individuals and nations. Two major themes running through the OT are: The redemption of mankind God s Covenant. In the New Testament (NT) tells of Jesus teaching, miracles and prophecy. Jesus is rejected and crucified. But He rises from the dead in triumph. He sends his disciples out in the power of the Holy Spirit to carry His message of love and forgiveness to the four corners of the earth. The final book of the Bible is Revelation which describes the future of the world and humanity. The Gideon Bible says in the introduction Come to it with awe, read it with reverence, frequently, slowly, prayerfully. You might like to put this quotation on your display table.

What does it mean to forgive someone? to express understanding of some Christian texts through art. to explore the meaning of a parable to reflect on what it means to be forgiven Two sessions Explain to the children that they are going to make some windows to show what Christians believe God is like. Each pair of children will be given two Bible verses to find. Ask them to discuss what these verses tell Christians about God. Each pair has two tasks: Each child creates a picture (paint/draw/pastel) to show their understanding of one of the verses they have been given. Then they have to explain their picture in illuminated writing. All of the pictures created can be put into window frames and made into a wall display. Explain that the class is going to explore a parable. Explain the meaning of parable. Tell the story of the Prodigal Son. Luke 15 v11-32 from The Parables Project OR In talking partners, children discuss questions they would like to ask about the story. Make a list of the questions and explore possible answers.

A parable is a story which explains a religious truth or truths NB to feed the pigs this was the ultimate indignity for a Jew, not only was the work distasteful but pigs are unclean animals to Jews. The pods referred to in v16 are the seeds of a carob tree. V22-23 The best robe ring.sandals.feast each of these was a sign of position and acceptance. The forgiving love of the father symbolises the mercy of God and the older brother s resentment is like the attitude of

14 In partners talk about a time when you have been forgiven. How did you feel? Have you forgiven anyone? Write about and explain your favourite part of the story. Children s writing. the pharisees and the teachers of the Law who opposed Jesus. Why is the Bible an important book? Make up a TV advertisement for selling the Bible.
